AS10 Death, Dying, and Bereavement training course

Death in contemporary American society is most likely to occur in old age. Historically, causes of death were quite different than in contemporary society, and infanticide was common. Today, social class, gender, race all impact how we die. Attitudes towards death and dying have also changed, with the shape of terminal illness socially constructed. Issues surrounding how we die are shifting as things like cremation, advance directives, and euthanasia become more present in conversation and practice. This course will review the history of death and dying in American society, explore the ways in which the experience of dying has shifted in contemporary society, and discuss current views on how we die and deal with the complexity of end-of-life care today.
