Healing Conversations at the End of Life
Guests: Tony Silbert, Joan Chadbourne and Jeffrey Cohn

People usually want to put off thinking about death, their own or anyone else’s. Tony Silbert and Joan Chadbourne were both compelled by crisis to have meaningful and powerfully intimate conversations with parents before they died. Their experiences led to their book, Healing Conversations Now: Enhance Relationships with Elders and Dying Loved Ones. The authors discuss the kinds of appreciative and energetic questions and the qualities of attentive and connected listening that can led them to healing conversations with loved ones. Their stories can give us all insights on things we can do to help healing conversations take place when crisis arise, and if we are think about it carefully, beforehand. Jeffrey Cohn, MD, is the chief quality officer for the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia. As a physician he has thought deeply about end of life care, and the kind of communication that helps people confront the issues involved.
