The purpose of Death 101: A Workbook for Educating and Healing, 2nd edition is to provide an understanding of dying, death, and bereavement that will assist individuals to cope better with and understand their own death and the death of others. It enables us to examine cultural attitudes and assumptions about dying and death.

Review:

It is packed. The advice is practical and doable. For all of us who are already too busy, it is a place to jump in and out as specific needs, questions and challenges arise. It is exhaustive in its resources and resource information. There are tasks, activities, quizzes, resources, ideas and thoughts ... with so much more ... to place before the griever either as friend, as counselor, or in the group setting. It comforts, teaches and facilitates. It serves well. I have already freely used its many contributions, and you will do the same. There is a helpful concluding addendum that adds to our day and time, Death and Terrorism. --Rev. Dr. Richard B. Gilbert, BCC, Resources Hotline, Volume 5, Number 16

Each chapter is plainly written and easy to read; in addition, the author presents a variety of activities along the way questions and answers, word associations, impromptu writings, etc. designed to give the reader a greater understanding of death and the issues surrounding it. Despite the gravitas of these subjects, by the end of the book, the reader is uplifted not depressed, prepared not confused, and enlightened not frightened about the ramifications of death and dying. This in and of itself is enough to highly recommend Death 101, not only to professional caregivers but also to anyone who wants to come to terms with the inevitable conclusion of life. - --Mark Westfield, Online Review, March 2004
