Item description for Death, Dying And Bereavement: The Hong Kong Chinese Experience by Cecilia Lai-Wan Chan & Amy Yin Man Chow...
The science of thanotology -- the study of the phenomena of death and the psychological mechanisms for coping with death -- has developed rapidly across the globe. But very little is known about death and related issues in China because the subject is considered taboo by the Chinese people. This volume -- written by local experts including medical doctors, nurses, clinical psychologists and social workers -- provides a comprehensive perspective for professionals, caregivers, and bereaved persons. To overseas researchers, this is the first reference work on this topic related to Chinese. To local healthcare and social work students and professionals, this collection will serve as an indispensable guide.
