Title: A PERSPECTIVE ON THE CURRENT STATE OF DEATH EDUCATION
Author: Wass, Hannelore
Appeared in: Death studies
Paging: Volume 28 (2004) nr. 4 pages 289-308
Year: 2004-05
Contents: The author offers some views on the current state of death education with focus on the sparing attention given the death education of health professionals and of grief counselors. There is need for improved integration of the knowledge accumulated in the study of death, dying, and bereavement into the basic curricula of the parent disciplines and professional schools. Facilitation of personal engagement with the issue of mortality is an important component of the educative process. Various assessment problems are outlined and some suggestions for improvements are offered. The death education needs of various groups, including school age children and older adults, are noted. The article contains a list of references, many not cited in the text, recommended for an extensive review of developments in death education.
