When Clients Are Dying: Occupational Therapists' Perspectives.
Bye, Rosalind A.
Occupational Therapy Journal of Research, v18 n1 p3-24 Win 1998

The core phenomenon was affirming life--preparing for death. Reframing processes helped therapists acknowledge their patients' dual status of living and dying. (SK)
