Title in English: Selected problems of thanatology
The aim of the publication "Selected problems of thanatology" is to point out to the issues of death and dying, which are - in addition to the strong taboo - subject to many mistaken beliefs. From a psychological point of view it discusses the death concept in children during ontogenesis. Following chapters are dedicated to neglect of the needs of the sick and dying who, due to lack of information, ignorance and unwillingness of their surroundings, are dying without the control of symptoms and saturation of somatic, psychological and spiritual needs. The lack of knowledge has consequences for the mourning process in which subjects often experience complications, pathology that are not identified and are left without professional intervention. The publication is primarily intended for students of psychology programs; however, it can enrich all helping professions.
