Working with Clients who face end-of-life issues requires responsibility for difficult decisions that concern a client's selfdetermination, the kind of death he or she will have, and the prolongation of life. Practitioners also need to remain sensitive to the beliefs and needs of family members and the legal, ethical, and spiritual ramifications of the client's death. Featuring twenty-eight decision cases based on interviews with professional social workers, this unique volume allows students to wrestle with the often incomplete and conflicting information, ethical issues, and time constraints of a "live" case. Instead of offering easy solutions, this book presents dilemmas that are a source of ongoing debate between practitioners and provides students with the opportunity to confront their own responses, beliefs, and uncertainties regarding one of the most profound experiences of life.
