Counseling and Death.
Barry, John R.
Increasingly, helpers are asked to counsel the dying and their relatives. The research and other literature are reviewed for information and ideas that might be helpful to a counselor; for example, research and speculation about fears of death are examined. While an awareness of such information may reassure the counselor who tries to counsel in this area, it is even more important to help the client sort out and deal with his or her own feelings about death. Finally, counselors must be persons who by their actions, signal to the client that they care. (Author)
