A cross-cultural study that explores how people of various backgrounds - religious, ethnic, gender, and/or sexual orientation - cope with death, dying, and grieving. It is a guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, physicians, nurses, other practitioners, educators, and students who are concerned with helping persons who are dying and families who are grieving, and who must understand why certain groups react as they do to such events.
A valuable book for health care professionals working with culturally diverse populations.
