by  Marilyn A. Mendoza Ph.D
From Psychology Today

Teaching Doctors to Talk About Death 
From PBS.org

"Faced with the uncomfortable task of discussing death, doctors often avoid the topic.

For my doctoral research on complicated grief, I accumulated a lot of data on this troubling phenomenon. A common thread among the parents was a belief that many of them echoed... "The depth of your pain equals the depth of the love you have for your child."   READ MORE
