Congratulations.î -- Lynne Ann DeSpelder CoAuthor, The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying, 8th edition "This is no ordinary academic textbook.

This is an important and substantial addition to the mostly self-help literature about self-care for caregivers."--Doody's Medical Reviews In the Face of Death explores the experiences of health care professionals who care for the seriously ill, the dying, and the bereaved. In this book, Danai Papadatou offers a practical approach to caregiving, as well as a breadth and depth of insight into both the patient's and the caregiver's responses to death. The author discusses the issues and challenges health care professionals face when treating dying and bereaved patients. Topics include: compassion fatigue, the inevitability of suffering and the potential for growth, suffering in the workplace, team functioning in death situations, and team resilience. The main themes are: The Caring Relationship focuses on the relationship between the care provider and the person who is dying or grieving, and proposes a new, relationship-based model of care The Care Provider in Death Situations addresses the health professional's personal responses to death, using a model that illustrates the grieving process of the health professional The Team in the Face of Death provides recommendations for effective, interdisciplinary care services that support dying or bereaved patients as well as the health care provider

Renowned author and educator Alan Wolfelt redefines the role of the grief counselor in this guide for caregivers. His new model for "companioning" the bereaved gives a viable alternative to the limitations of the medical establishment, encouraging counselors and other caregivers to aspire to a more compassionate philosophy. This approach argues that grief need no longer be defined, diagnosed, and treated as an illness but rather should be an acknowledgement of an event that forever changes a person's worldview. Through careful listening and observation, the caregiver learns to support mourners and help them help themselves heal.

Ein unvergessliches Buch über eine unvergessene Liebe Das Ende seiner großen Liebe zu Mia lässt Adam fast am Leben zerbrechen. Ruhelos, leer, ausgebrannt fühlt er sich, trotz seiner sensationellen Erfolge als Rockstar. Auch wenn er seinen Gefühlen auf der millionenfach verkauften CD Collateral Damage Ausdruck verliehen hat, ist der Schmerz über den Verlust von Mia noch immer zu stark, als dass er ihn ertragen könnte. Als Adam von einem Konzert erfährt, das Mia, inzwischen gefeierte Cellistin, in New York gibt, will er nur eines: sie wiedersehen. Noch in derselben Nacht finden sie den Mut, sich auszusprechen, sich auszusöhnen und sich zu trennen, um eigene Wege zu gehen. Da hört er, wie eine Stimme seinen Namen ruft ... Eine große Liebesgeschichte zweier Menschen, die gegensätzlicher nicht sein können und sich doch brauchen, um vollständig zu sein.
