Über diesen Titel:
Reflecting on the author's experiences as a music-thanatologist, Jennifer Hollis's Music at the End of Life: Easing the Pain and Preparing the Passage is an enlightening and emotional examination of the ways in which the experience of dying can be transformed with music.
Music at the End of Life highlights the unique role music has come to play in hospice and palliative medicine. Jennifer Hollis interweaves narrative memoir, the personal experiences of fellow music-thanatologists and caregivers, and extensive research to demonstrate the transformative power of music when curing is no longer an option. Through story after unforgettable story, Hollis offers a new vision of end-of-life care, in which music creates a beautiful space for the work of letting go, grieving, and saying goodbye.
The belief in the healing power of music dates back to antiquity. Today, the concept is widely accepted in the United States, and finds perhaps its most profound practical application with patients at the end of their lives, when practitioners bridging medicine, music, and spiritual care offer symptom relief and support to dying patients and their families.
