Open Access Graduate Research Paper
According to many authorities, probably the most universally shared human fears are those surrounding death (Clarke, 1981; Kubler-Ross, 1969; Momeyer, 1985). In counseling 11 life-threatened11 or dying clients, there is an urgent need for empathy and transparency on the part of the counselor. Ideally, it is essential for counselors to resolve as much as possible their own conflicts concerning "death issues" so that they are more able to help clients work through their own unresolved conflicts concerning the impending death.
