Remembering Lives : Conversations with the Dying and the Bereaved, Hardback Book

Remembering Lives : Conversations with the Dying and the Bereaved Hardback


Grief is frequently thought of as an ordeal we must simply survive.

This book offers a fresh approach to the negotiation of death and grief.

It is founded in principles of constructive conversation that focus on "remembering" lives, in contrast to processes of forgetting or dismembering those who have died.

Re-membering is about a comforting, life enhancing, and sustaining approach to death that does not dwell on the pain of loss and is much more than wistful reminiscing.

It is about the deliberate construction of stories that continue to include the dead in the membership of our lives.
