Book ↠ On Death and Dying Ç Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

On Death and DyingOne of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century On Death and Dying grew out of Dr Elisabeth Kübler Ross's famous interdisciplinary seminar on death life and transit To begin this review an important uote about the way we train doctors to interact with patients What happens in a society that puts emphasis on I and class standing than on simple matters of tact sensitivity perceptiveness and good taste in the management of the suffering? In a professional society where the young medical student is admired for his research and laboratory work during the first years of medical school while he is at a loss of words when a patient asks him a simple uestion? If we could combine the teaching of the new scientific and technical achievements with eual emphasis on the interpersonal human relationships we could indeed make progress but not if the new knowledge is conveyed to the student at the price of less and less interpersonal contactA wonderful book about what the dying can teach us about how and why to live Kubler Ross takes us through her model of grief denial anger bargaining sadness and acceptance and explains the functions and complexities of each stage She also discusses the history of death and how society's views of it have changed as well as the ways in which we interact with the dying A uote I found helpful about understanding anger A patient who is respected and understood who is given attention and a little time will soon lower his voice and reduce his angry demands He will know that he is a valuable human being cared for allowed to function at the highest possible level as long as he can He will be listened to without the need for a temper tantrum he will be visited without ringing the bell every so often because dropping in on him is not a necessary duty but a pleasureMy main takeaway from reading On Death and Dying talk about death These conversations carry huge challenges and loads of emotional difficulty But they have the potential to create an openness and understanding that will free both the dying and those closest to them Kubler Ross shares many interviews in this book and exposes us to how hard death is By doing so she allows us to start the process of accepting the trials and tribulations that come with passing on so we can live the best we canRecommended to anyone interested in death and dying either because of a personal experience or for a miscellaneous reason I will end this review with a final uote that resonated with me Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever To be a therapist to a dying patient makes us aware of the uniueness of each individual in this vast sea of humanity It makes us aware of our finiteness our limited lifespan Few of us live beyond our three score and ten years and yet in that brief time most of us create and live a uniue biography and weave ourselves into the fabric of human history
