Beyond Kübler-Ross: New Perspectives on Death, Dying and Grief looks closely at the pioneering legacy of the work of Kübler-Ross and discusses how professional understanding of dying and grief has progressed and developed.

From the Book
Like any important theorist who preceded us, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross helped advance our thinking in this field and sparked important efforts to find good in those who are coping with dying and in ourselves. She offered us constructive lessons; it is our responsibility to appreciate both the strengths and the limitations of what she wrote. That will not be accomplished by merely freezing our understandings of her work in an often simplistic reading of a theoretical model set forth in 1969. Turning to the future, we have opportunities to move forward in our thinking about coping with dying and helping those who are coping with dying.
