The Best Way to Say Goodbye: A Legal Peaceful Choice At the End of Life

What are our two greatest end-of-life fears? To endure unnecessary prolonged pain and suffering, and merely to exist in a state of total indignity and dependency such as in Alzheimer's dementia. Uninformed, some people add layers of tragedy to their destiny. Some choose to die prematurely; others, violently; a few risk imprisonment by mercy killing. Often their lament is, If only Physician-Assisted Suicide were legal. Yet there is an alternative that is already legal: Voluntary Refusal of Food & Fluid. While sometimes intentionally maligned as barbaric starvation, ceasing all Food & Fluid is a truly peaceful way to hasten dying by dehydration. While taking an average of 14 days, it allows for the exchange of healing goodbyes with loved ones who can forever be sure it was these patients' intent since they could have changed their mind.
What makes the process peaceful? Knowing how to control thirst. (The author went on two fasts himself to learn what works.) In addition, good discussions with family members before beginning. Consistent with the principles of some religions, this method is available even for patients who are physically too sick to put a lethal dose of medication in their mouths and swallow.
By creating strategically effective documents for a trusted agent or proxy to withhold Food & Fluid on the patient's behalf, this way to Permit Natural Dying can actually extend the quality of life of those with early dementia. They can enjoy living until they reach a point they have previously described in behavioral terms (perhaps with help from using one of the book's forms).
Beyond serving as an authoritative source of information to strive for an ironclad strategy for dementia, the book endorses life's most ironic fact: When people know they can control when they die--they can, and often do--choose to live longer.
Poignant memoirs illustrate its practical guidelines and useful forms; for example, why Proxy Directives are more effective than Living Wills, and how to make Living Wills work better if they are the only available choice.
The book-within-a-book format of this book is as unique as its content is comprehensive. Over 300 citations, an index, a glossary, and further resources... yet its core reading is user-friendly for all. The subject matter is lightened by 22 cartoons and humorous stories; deepened by provocative discussions of the secular meaning of Sanctity of Life ; and broadened by considering the emotional, practical, clinical, legal, moral, ethical, religious, spiritual, and political aspects of a subject that will affect absolutely everyone.

Suicide: Understanding and Intervening (Resources for Changing Lives)

Suicide: Understanding and Intervening (Resources for Changing Lives) Lowest new price: $0.99

Author: Jeffrey S. Black

Suicide is profoundly tragic. What depth of unbearable pain and hopelessness suicidal people experience. And when a Christian commits or contemplates suicide, it is both tragic and confusing.

Jeffrey Black tells us that the intention to commit suicide is a crisis--a sinful act born out of pain and sorrow. Though promised new life in Christ and a living hope, some believers don't keep their eyes focused on these truths. God has the power to help.



Here we learn the signs of suicide and guidelines for intervening when someone appears suicidal.

The Assessment And Management of Suicidality (Practitioner's Resource)

The Assessment And Management of Suicidality (Practitioner's Resource) Lowest new price: $17.95
Lowest used price: $16.19
List price: $21.95
Author: M. David Rudd

Suicide risk assessment has become a routine task among clinicians working in outpatient settings. As inpatient alternatives have slowly dwindled and lengths of stay have decreased dramatically over the past two decades, it has become increasingly important that mental health practitioners be well informed about, and comfortable with, assessing suicide risk and managing those at-risk in outpatient settings. There is little doubt that those in clinical practice will see suicidal patients even if they are not identified as working in the specialty area. It is difficult, if not impossible, to so tightly control the patient flow to prevent these individuals from appearing through routine referral channels. Since the author had yet to find a brief, thorough, and easily accessible clinical guide to suidice risk assessment, one that clinicians of all stripes could review in a short time frame, he wrote this book to fill that gap in the literature.

Developing Clinical Skills in Suicide Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment

Developing Clinical Skills in Suicide Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment Lowest new price: $54.67
Lowest used price: $35.00
List price: $55.95
Author: Jason M.
Brand: Brand: Amer Counseling Assn

Although most counselors work throughout their careers with depressed and suicidal clients, many do not have the formal training required to effectively assess and treat these at-risk clients. This text bridges this training gap by helping professionals master the skills and develop the knowledge base necessary to counsel suicidal clients in all age groups.


McGlothlin explains how to conduct assessment interviews and use suicide assessment tools, identify levels of lethality using his SIMPLE STEPS model, create a comprehensive suicide prevention and treatment plan, and work with family members. In addition, he offers guidance on what to do when clients kill themselves and examines the legal and ethical issues surrounding suicide. Case examples, discussion questions, measurable individual and group activities, and additional skill building resources throughout the book link theory to practice in a concrete way. A final chapter presents stories from the field that inspire counselor reflection and growth.


This is not only an essential resource for practitioners who lack formal training in this area, it is an ideal text for graduate or undergraduate courses in practica, basic or advanced skill building, assessment, and crisis counseling. Developing Clinical Skills in Suicide Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment is quite simply one of the most useful and informative books available on this topic because it offers proven and easy to follow techniques for working with suicidal clients.

A Mother's Story

A Mother's Story Lowest new price: $53.75

List price: $10.95
Author: Gloria Vanderbilt

On a summer day in 1988, Carter Cooper, aged 24, dropped to his death from the 14th-floor terrace of his mother's New York City's apartment. Now, seven years later, Gloria Vanderbilt is finally able to set down the terrible events of that afternoon--to which she was a witness--in a book of overwhleming intensity, feeling, and beauty.

In 1988, Gloria Vanderbilt's 23-year-old son Carter committed suicide. As Vanderbilt looked on, Carter swung away from the terrace wall of her 14th-floor New York apartment and, in Vanderbilt's words, "He let go." In this poignant memoir, Vanderbilt reflects on her own painful history and what she describes as "the final loss, the fatal loss that stripped me bare." She thought, she says, that she could not survive the death of her son. This memoir is a testimony to her courage and her own return to life.
