ICL: DEATH AND DYING: A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE - 6 Sessions
DEATH AND DYING: A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE by Scotty Hargrove
6 Sessions, Mondays, January 13 – February 17, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The inevitability of death is a significant source of anxiety for individuals and families. Difficulties in talking about death and the discomfort that people experience often result in conflict and distance among families that makes managing illness and eventual death even more difficult, sometimes catastrophic. An understanding of how each family historically has dealt with death enlightens and provides the resources for clear communication among the family members and health care providers. This clarity enables dying persons and family members to make informed decisions about the final days of their loved ones. This series of meetings is designed to help clarify emotional issues of death and dying and to identify potential resources that may be helpful.
