Question 2.  (1 point)

As discussed in class, rather than constantly offering advice or hunting for the right thing to say, sometimes the best thing we can do for a dying person, or for a person who is dealing with significant grief, is just “________________________________________”.

Question 3. (2 points)
Cindy went out drinking with friends yesterday. She consumed a significant amount of alcohol including shots of tequila and beer. By the end of the evening, she wasn’t feeling well and worried about having a horrible hangover in the morning. She decided that taking several Tylenol when she got home would be a good idea as it may help to prevent a pounding headache in the morning. Clearly explain why this is not a good idea.  Type your answer below.

 

Question 4. (2 points).
We discussed that, “A social inequality of death exists.” Clearly explain this statement with relevant & sufficient information. Then, be sure to also provide an actual example of how this can be an issue in the real-world.  Type your answer below.

Question 5. (1 points)

Provide a clear, hypothetical example (not a definition) of someone who is the “bargaining” stage of grief / coping with dying. Type your answer below.

Question 6. (2 points)

Critically Think about the information presented in the examples below! Then provide an answer to the question based on what we covered / learned in class.

Barb’s mother died 5 months ago of Alzheimer’s disease. Barb has been coping by going to church and talking with her Pastor about her loss when she feels especially sad. She has also been volunteering her spare time at a facility for Alzheimer’s patients a few hours per month, which she finds rewarding.

Lisa’s mother also died 5 months ago of the same disease. Lisa has been coping by sleeping up to 15 hours per day and by drinking 1 to 2 bottles of wine during the times when she is awake. She says this really helps to get her mind off of the loss and helps to reduce the emotional pain associated with her mother’s death. Lisa has also been making effort to avoid talking to family or friends about the loss of her mother as that will “only make me miss her more and will just make me feel worse.”

Critically Think about the information presented in the examples below! Then provide an answer to the question based on what we covered / learned in class.

John’s father died 2 and a half months ago. He has coped by exercising 3 days per week at the gym, attending church and church related activities, playing his guitar which gives him a sense of peace, and openly talking to his two best friends about the loss of his father and the feelings he has.

Larry’s father also died 2 and a half months ago. He is coping by listening to his favorite soothing music, writing his thoughts and feelings in a journal, and engaging in extracurricular activities with his daughter. Also, he and his sister are putting together a photo album highlighting the positive memories of his father and have been openly discussing those memories as they continue to work on the album.
