Dead and Dying: Book Review
Regarded as one of the renowned psychological books in the late 20th century period, One Death and Dying emerged from an interdisciplinary workshop on death, initially produced by Dr Elizabeth Kuzzbler Ross. In the book, Kuzzbler-Ross first had an introduction and exploration of the presently popular idea of the five stages of handling death. The stages included denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Also, with the interviews and conversations she has compiled, this book gives its potential reader a better way understanding of the manner in which the immediate death impacts on patients, the professionals handling the patient and his or her family, a source of hope and the peace of mind it all entails.
