The Mysteries of Menopause

Hi dearies, Simone here. Your assignment now is to write your next journal entry. Call it: Chapter 4—The Mysteries of Menopause. Discuss what you learned about menopause—and don’t just repeat the notes from the article we read.

Objective: Students explain the main components of menopause

slide7

Death and Dying

When people with terminal

illnesses learn about them,

they and their families must

cope with a truth that many

of us do not want to face.

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

(1969) studied how the

terminally ill react to

their impending deaths

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide8

Death and Dying

As an anticipatory activity for this

section, let’s watch a brief film clip from

the 1998 commercial film Patch Adams

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide9

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross’s studies

led to the establishment of thanatology—the study of death and dying.

She identified five stages of

psychological adjustment.

Stage 1: Denial

First reaction to news is

shock, numbness, then denial

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide10

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

Stage 2: Anger

“Why me?”

Likely to alienate

themselves from

others—no one can

relieve their anger.

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide11

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

Stage 3: Bargaining

Change attitude and

try to bargain with

fate

May try to make

a bargain with

God

This stage is relatively short

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide12

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

Stage 4: Depression

Become aware of

losses they are

incurring. . .

. . . and of the losses that

are to come—everybody

and everything

Helpful for others to let these

people express their sadness

slide13

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

Stage 5: Acceptance

Recognition that the struggle is

over—sense of calm

In some cases, the approach of death feels peaceful or appropriate

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide14

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

Not all terminal patients

progress through all of the

stages of the Kubler-Ross

Model—some die in the

denial stage: some can’t

psychologically get

past denial; for others, the

disease proceeds too fast

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

slide15

Objective: Students explain the main components of thanatology

Death and Dying

Kubler-Ross Model

An addendum to

the Kubler-Ross

model in light of

the 2005 Terri

Schiavo situation

Now we shall watch a film on Thanatology

Tuesdays With Morrie

Amyotrophic Lateral

Sclerosis (ALS)

Lou Gehrig’s Disease

What is ALS?

slide20

Oprah Winfrey Presents: Tuesdays With Morrie

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative

disease that attacks nerve cells in the

brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons

reach from the brain to the spinal cord

and from the spinal cord to the muscles

throughout the body. The progressive

degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS

eventually lead to their death. When the

motor neurons die, the ability of the brain

to initiate and control muscle movement

is lost. Therefore in the later stages of the

disease, patients become totally paralyzed.

observing and writing in their journals about Tuesdays With Morrie
