Living with Dying is the first textbook on end-of-life care for social workers and other healthcare practitioners who work with the terminally ill and their families. Organized around theoretical issues in loss, grief, and bereavement, and around clinical practice with individuals, families, and groups, the book addresses practice with people who have specific illnesses such as AIDS, bone marrow disease, and cancer, and pays special attention to patients that have been stigmatized by culture, ability, sexual orientation, age, and race, or homelessness.
