Using a social-psychological approach, the new edition of this book remains solidly grounded in theory and research as it delivers practical information to help you examine your own feelings about — and cope with — death and grieving. Drawing from their decades of experience as teachers and researchers, the authors integrate stimulating personal accounts with numerous examples illustrating cross-cultural perspectives and the practical matters of death and dying. Coverage includes new information on opioids and suicide, critical sociology, middle-aged suicide, school shootings in the U.S. compared with other countries, U.K. and U.S. prison hospice programs, animal hospices, capital punishment, the high cost of saying goodbye and much more.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
