Springer Publishing Company; 1 edition | July 20, 2009 | English | ISBN: 0826105513 | 392 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Firestone and Catlett's groundbreaking volume assists mental health practitioners in helping their clients learn to accept and face their mortality. They describe the many defenses of death anxiety that keep individuals from achieving personal fulfillment, and also suggest methods to cope directly with fears of death; an approach that, ironically, can lead to more satisfaction, more freedom, and a greater appreciation for the gift of life.
This book examines the many destructive consequences of death anxiety, including introversion, depression, and withdrawal from life. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate the importance of achieving what they call life-affirming death awareness.
Key topics include:
The dawning awareness of death and its impact on the developing child
Literal and symbolic defenses against death anxiety
Separation theory and "the fantasy bond"
Challenging the defenses that interfere with living fully
Microsuicide: the death of the spirit
Breaking with limiting religious dogma and cultural worldviews
With this book, mental health practitioners and their clients will be able to better understand death awareness, overcome the defenses against death anxiety, and ultimately lead richer, more fulfilling lives.
