“If you had one professional wish for your future, what would it be?” In 2007 a life-long friend of Peg's, Dr. Ann Wigodsky, asked Peg that question. Peg’s answer was “I’d want to share knowledge about the benefits of grief and bereavement counseling as widely as possible.” How to Be with Someone Who is Dying is the result of that wish.
Over the past 25 years, Peg has counseled thousands of individuals, their families and other loved ones on the journey toward a conscious, transformative experience of death. Mary Denman’s intimate interview with Peg distills the hard-earned wisdom of those experiences into 31 questions and answers on How to Be with Someone Who is Dying. The making of the DVD was a joyful collaboration from start to finish.
Sincere thanks and appreciation are offered to:
Susan Gore, Ph.D. (Co-Producer)
We are extremely grateful to everyone who helped us create this DVD with their time and energy, most especially Dorothy Haecker, Bruce Kibodeaux, Leslie Turner, Bonita Griffith, Pat Wood, Tory Schoppe, Mikail Davenport, and all the focus group participants in San Antonio and Dallas who helped ensure the right questions were answered.
In loving memory of Hope Bondurant, Rabbi Mark Goodman, Maggie Sheerin, Joan Reichert, and Cindy Deegear, from whom Peg says "I learned more than I taught".
