Death: A Personal Understanding

Gain a greater understanding of death and dying through case studies and moving personal stories of people facing their own death or the death of a loved one. This series explores a wide range of North American cultural perspectives on death within the context of current issues, including AIDS, death by violence, suicide, assisted suicide, hospice care, end-of-life decision making, and how children react to death. Leading authority Robert J. Kastenbaum guides you sensitively through these topics. This series is appropriate for courses in allied health, psychology, sociology, religion, and death studies.

Episode Description
Saturday, Mar 16, 2013 - 3:30 AM    "Grief and Bereavement" The effect of grief can last a lifetime as we try to find a balance between overcoming our loss and keeping the memory of the loved one alive. In this program, the question "How long does grief last?" guides conversations with two middle-aged sisters whose mother recently died; with members of a family in which the youngest son was murdered; with an adult orphaned as a child; and with a teenager who lost her mother, and may now lose her father and brother, to AIDS..
