Product Overview

The companion guide to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross''s famous workshops on death and dying

This remarkable guide to coping with death and dying grew out of Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross''s realization that she could help larger numbers of terminally ill people directly by meeting with them in groups. The first such meeting in 1970 led to hundreds more throughout the United States and the world and now to "Working It Through, " a testament to "faith and the ability to survive and transcend the most difficult trials in life" as Kubler-Ross writes in her foreword. The photographer Mal Warshaw has documented the workshops, and his moving photographs bring this already powerful book to life.

Author Info
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross grew up in Switzerland and attended the University of Zurich, where she received her M.D. in 1957. She became familiar with death in early childhood, as she reports in her memoir THE WHEEL OF LIFE, and she did relief work in post-war Europe. It was there that her ideas about dignity and the importance of listening to the dying were born. She came to the United States in the late '50s and worked in many hospitals. Eventually she was allowed to teach a seminar at the University of Chicago on her research. Her first book, ON DEATH & DYING was published in 1969 and has been a perennial best seller. It opened up a field that is now a section in many bookstores. She lectured widely, and is considered one of the founders of the hospice movement. Late in her life Kubler-Ross became involved in work with AIDS patients. One day in 1994, she returned from a trip to find her house in flames. She lost all of her belongings including her photographs, memorabilia, and thousands of case histories and other files from a lifetime of work. Her memoir also records her interest in near-death experience, channeling, and life after death.
