PSY 190 Death and Dying

 

The course focuses on personal attitudes towards death and dying, Kubler-Ross and other conceptions of death; a theory of loss affecting break-up or relationships, divorce, illness and other phenomena or little deaths. Death through the life cycle and impact on family are also reviewed. Grief and mourning as necessary processes toward restitution are understood as attempts at healing. Suicide, Mega-Deaths, murder, abuse are surveyed as examples of violent death. Moral issues such as quality of life, living will, and euthanasia are discussed as emerging medical technology raises questions that will impact on people. A psychosocial approach helps students connect this course to an appreciation of life and living while coping with their understanding death as part of the human experience.
