Fading Away
By Betty Davies
This book comes out of the qualitative study of the experiences of twenty-three families in which one parent was dying of cancer. The study attempted to better understand the effect of terminal illness on the entire family system and sought to develop a theoretical framework that would guide the assessment of and services to such families. As a result of interviews with patients, spouses and their adult children over three phases of the study, the process of "fading away" was identified and conceptualised in terms of various phases which contributed to this process.

Facing Death
By Sandra Bertman
"Sandra Bertman has given us a distinctive work. In this book Bertman shares an approach to helping us cope with death and grief that draws upon the arts and humanities, an approach she pioneered. On almost every other page we find artistic, literary, or 'pop-culture' images of death, loss, and suffering that have a profound effect on us evoking many different thoughts, stirring emotions, including laughter, and causing us to pause and reflect. This book is a valuable resource for those who want to complement and enrich their scientific knowledge. It is indispensable for the death educator." - Hannelore Wass, Ph.D., University of Florida, Founding Editor, Death Studies.
