Death Concern and the Helping Professional.
Crosbie, Janet; Garlie, Norman W.
The authors rewiew the literature on the current state of training for health professionals to cope with death and dying. They also comment on recent changes in cultural attitudes toward death. Representatives of the helping professions (counselors, teachers, nurses, doctors, clergy, social workers) should be better prepared to help people deal with fears and grief. A questionnaire study (Newfoundland) indicates that young trainees in nursing are more acceptant of death than older members of other helping professions. (SBP)
