Conversations about Death: A Practical Guide to Talking about End-of-Life Care and Dying
Conversations About Death is the result Sally Cant's twenty years in the death and dying industry. It contains a wealth of information that will make you feel more relaxed, open and comforted by talking about death and dying.
Conversations About Death is a much needed tool: to assist in those conversations about what things a person might consider for themselves and their families regarding their death; to understand what's happening in the field of 'death care'; to know what changes are being made; and to be informed as to what might be possible for the future. This book will, amongst many other things, look at what choices people have when faced with death themselves, or the death of a loved one, and reveal all you need to know about the funeral industry. Sally's book will educate you on what is possible, how to have healthy conversations and how to 'sit in' another person's grief and assist them in a positive way.
