This guide for counsellors and lay caregivers explores the art of caring for the dying and their families. Based on the tenets first articulated by renowned grief educator Dr Alan Wolfelt, this respectful and gratifying guide to care-giving includes personal accounts that debunk the myth of the "good death" and teach caregivers to find the transformative potential of every moment in every experience. Written with wit and illustrated throughout with the author's poetry and artwork, it includes advice for comforting patients and their families as well as advice for dealing with the internal stress common to the profession. The guidance provided will help counsellors feel affirmed in their abilities to "be with" the dying and support them and their families.

A must have book which gives an incredible insight into how best to help those who are in the last stages of their earthly journey. It explains about the need to recognise the wishes of the dying person and to honour each death as the personal journey that it is. It is not about a right or wrong death, it is about the persons journey to make it what they wish.
There is as many different journeys as there are people and the dying person's wishes are top priority, even if it does not measure up to our standards or wishes.
I recommend this book strongly and I personally have learnt so much from it.
