Abstract
On a Saturday morning at the end of November 2008, a young family suffered the loss of two sons and the permanent paralysis of another as a result of an automobile accident. Rather than tear the family apart, the tragedy drew them closer and touched the hearts of people in and out of their Catholic community. The boys' father began writing to express the painful emotions he felt and the faith that supported him. These poems and reflections, though heart-wrenching, have been presented in the hope they may bring comfort to other victims of tragedy by witnessing to the healing and transforming power of faith, family and love.

This program offers an intimate view of patients, families and professional caregivers when a cure for cancer is beyond reach. The program explores a variety of journeys at the end of life. Whether families draw on extensive or minimal support from siblings, stepparents and grandparents, they face choices that can lead to confusion and disagreement. Many other factors can increase the crushing burden at the end of a child's life, including a breakdown of communication within the medical team or between physicians, patients and parents; cultural barriers; and family stresses unrelated to cancer. Making decisions and living with them can be agonizing for everyone involved.

This volume addresses what to expect from grieving young people, and how to provide safe outlets for children to express emotion. Included in each book are tested, sensitive ideas for ?carpe diem? actions that people can take right this minute?while still remaining supportive and honoring the mourner?s loss.

Children-Coping with Death and Dying
Abstract
With sensitivity and insight, this series offers suggestions for healing activities that can help survivors learn to express their grief and mourn naturally. Acknowledging that death is a painful, ongoing part of life, they explain how people need to slow down, turn inward, embrace their feelings of loss, and seek and accept support when a loved one dies. Each book, geared for mourning adults, teens, or children, provides ideas and action-oriented tips that teach the basic principles of grief and healing. These ideas and activities are aimed at reducing the confusion, anxiety, and huge personal void so that the living can begin their lives again. Included in the books for teens and kids are age-appropriate activities that teach younger people that their thoughts are not only normal but necessary.

Caitlin has Asperger's. The world according to her is black and white; anything in between is confusing. Before, when things got confusing, Caitlin went to her older brother, Devon, for help. But Devon was killed in a school shooting, and Caitlin's dad is so distraught that he is just not helpful. Caitlin wants everything to go back to the way things were, but she doesn't know how to do that. Then she comes across the word closure--and she realizes this is what she needs. And in her search for it, Caitlin discovers that the world may not be so black and white after all.

Ces voix abordent notamment les profondes interrogations sur l'arrêt de traitements actifs et les réflexions qui en découlent, nourries à la fois des écrits, du ressenti et des expériences des cliniciens et des chercheurs. Ensemble, ces contributions appellent à une pratique médicale réflexive, informée et centrée sur l'humain.

Abstract
Comment aborder la question du suicide avec un membre de notre famille ou de notre entourage qui semble à risque? Doit-on lui cacher notre inquiétude ou, au contraire, lui poser des questions précises? Comment le faire sans aggraver la situation? Médecin psychiatre de l'Université McGill, Suzanne Lamarre nous livre dans ces pages une nouvelle vision de la problématique du suicide. Elle fait la preuve qu'il ne faut plus se limiter à traiter les comportements suicidaires comme les symptômes d'une maladie mentale, mais comme un moment clé pour réorganiser la vie avec les autres. Des histoires de cas, certaines tristes, d'autres touchantes ou qui se terminent bien, illustrent son propos. Une réflexion essentielle destinée à susciter de nombreuses discussions sur l'approche aux suicidaires et la stigmatisation des troubles mentaux.

Abstract
An automobile accident that killed his parents and sister has left Mike Scott bitter, without legs, and with little will to live. His aunt Norma provides a home, and his best friend, Robbie, is attentive, but Mike remains deeply depressed. A project researching and writing the 50-year history of Carlton High School helps engage Mike, until eighth-grader Sarah is assigned to help him. Sarah reminds Mike of his little sister, and he works hard to drive her away. But her curiosity, frankness, and indefatigable good humor gradually nudge Mike out of his self-pity, until the day she disappears.
