Learning and Teaching About Death and Dying.
This paper is divided into two parts; the first is an attempt to organize the various dimensions of death education in order to clarify educational foci appropriate to different needs for learning about death and dying. These dimensions of death education include: (1) the acceptance of living and dying as concommitant aspects of human enfolding; (2) the use of death to learn how to value life; (3) the specific needs of those who are dying; and (4) the understanding required by professional caretakers of the dying and grieving. The second part of the paper includes an outline of a course on death for prospective pastoral caretakers and some reflections on that process. Detailed references and a course outline form the Princeton Theological Seminary are included. (Author/SES)
