Description - Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family by Harold G. Koenig

Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family: A Pastoral Care Approach enables grief counselors, pastors, hospice specialists, hospital chaplains, mental health practitioners, educators, and seminary students to bring an understanding of faith development, family systems, and gender and ethnic differences into their professional practice as they work with dying and grieving persons. No other book covers all these themes. Not only a great resource for practical guidance, this book is also meant to be provocative, suggestive, and stimulating to professionals and educators charged with working with and teaching about dying and grieving persons. With 50 years of providing pastoral care to dying and grieving persons and 30 years as a pastoral educator, George Bowman understands the nature and concerns of dying and grieving persons. In Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family he answers the questions you should be asking yourself--including: * How does faith development affect relationships of the dying person and family and friends? * How does faith development affect grief management by the survivors? * How does the family systems approach help the pastor or counselor work with dying persons and their survivors? * What gender and ethnic issues are important to remember in helping to minister and serve persons in crises of dying and grieving? The value of Dying, Grieving, Faith, and Family lies in its approach to dying and grieving from the perspectives of faith development, family systems theory, gender, and ethnicity. Bowman's unique work proposes that personal development and faith development influence the way one deals with the crises of dying and grief work.
