Process of Dying

English / April 23, 2015 / No Comments /
Compares & contrasts two books: “Dying Well” (I. Byock) & “On Death and Dying” (E. Kubler-Ross).

“Issues on Death and Dying
In comparing and contrasting these two books – Dying Well and On Death and Dying – what is immediately apparent is that these books are complementary, rather than contradictory. They both focus on the individual process of dying, while they both find that there are common or typical issues that face dying individuals and their family members. Both emphasize that growth can occur through the process, and that people can die well if they are willing to go through the process with open minds and hearts. There are many other similarities and certainly some differences in their focus, and the lessons the authors drew from their experiences.”
