Abstract

It is vital for certified thanatology professionals of all kinds to keep abreast of current research and be familiar with important resources provided by national and local organizations in the field. For clinicians, such resources may be an adjunct to counseling. For instance, a self-help group experience might add to individual therapy, and written materials can provide the foundation for psychoeducational aspects of therapy. For educators, such resources may aid in teaching about dying, death, and bereavement. Moreover, individuals who are facing a crisis in dying or bereavement often seek out educators to recommend resources that might be helpful.
