Column: On death, dying, planning ahead - Faith - Northwest Florida Daily News | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
Column: On death, dying, planning ahead
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

Death is part of life and should not be shunned or avoided.  But this is usually the case among people--avoiding the conversation.  But if death is part of life, we should discuss it and share our fears, desires and wants at the time of death.

This can better prepare everyone.  Pastoral care givers can also help people discuss this difficult topic and help them communicate it

5 Characteristics Of Incredibly Resilient People | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
Resilient people look for reasons to laugh. They find humor in the mundane. They understand that paying attention to the ordinary is what makes life extraordinary....
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

This article lists five important factors of resilient people but I do feel the article leaves out two important factors as well.

The first being a belief in something, even yourself, but most notably a higher being.

Second, support systems.  Resilient people sometimes, also have strong family or church support to help them get through issues
