Synopsis: For nearly three decades, Sandra Bertman has been exploring the power of the arts and belief--symbols, metaphors, stories--to alleviate psychological and spiritual pain not only of patients, grieving family members, and affected communities but also of the nurses, clergy and physicians who minister to them. Her training sessions and clinical interventions are based on the premise that bringing out the creative potential inherent in each of us is just as relevant-- perhaps more so--as psychiatric theory and treatment models since grief and loss are an integral part of life. Thus, this work was compiled to illuminate the many facets that link grief, counseling, and creativity. The multiple strategies suggested in these essays will help practitioners enlarge their repertoire of hands-on skills and foster introspection and empathy in readers.

About the Author: Sandra Bertman, Ph.D., recently relocated to Boston College Graduate School Work where she is Research Professor of Palliative Care. Formerly Professor of Humanities in Medicine at University of Massachusetts Medical and Graduate Nursing Schools, Dr. Bertman was founding director of the program of Medical Humanities and the Arts in Healthcare. Awarded the Distinguished Professional Service Award by the University at large, she also was the recipient of the American Journal of Hospice Care s Award for extending her classroom and counseling techniques to patients, families and staff in hospice, hospital, and other therapeutic settings, and was named Outstanding Death Educator by both the Association of Death Education and Counseling and the National Center for Death Education. Her publication and media credits include the classic handbook Facing Death: Images, Insights and Interventions (1991), the documentary film Dying (PBS-TV, 1974), the column Staying Soulful for the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine s bulletin, and the project Care for the Caregivers addressing grief dynamics and HIV/AIDS burnout in Africa.
