2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four simple phrases-"Please forgive me," "I forgive you," "Thank you," and "I love you"-carry enormous power to mend and nurture our relationships and inner lives. These four phrases and the sentiments they convey provide a path to emotional well-being, guiding us through interpersonal difficulties to life with integrity and grace. Dr. Ira Byock, an international leader in palliative care, explains how we can practice these life-affirming words in our day-to-day lives. Too often we assume that the people we love really know that we love them. Dr. Byock demonstrates the value of "stating the obvious" and provides practical insights into the benefits of letting go of old grudges and toxic emotions. His stories help us to forgive, appreciate, love, and celebrate one another and live life more fully. Using the Four Things in a wide range of life situations, we can experience emotional healing even in the wake of family strife, personal tragedy, divorce, or in the face of death. With practical wisdom and spiritual power, The Four Things That Matter Most gives us the language and guidance to honor and experience what really matters most in our lives every day

The four things that matter most - 10th anniversary edition : a book about living by Ira Byock( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Four simple phrases -- "Please forgive me," "I forgive you," "Thank you," and "I love you"--Carry enormous power. In many ways, they contain the most powerful words in our language. These four phrases provide us with a clear path to emotional wellness; they guide us through the thickets of interpersonal difficulties to a conscious way of living that is full of integrity and grace. In The Four Things That Matter Most, Dr. Ira Byock, an international leader in palliative care, teaches us how to practice these life-affirming words in our day-to-day lives. Too often we assume that the people we love really know we love them. Dr. Byock reveals the value of stating the obvious and provides insights into how we burden ourselves by hanging on to old grudges unconsciously and unnecessarily. He shows us how to avoid living with those awkward silences and uncomfortable issues that distance us from the people we love and erode our sense of well-being and joy. His insights and stories help us to forgive, appreciate, love, and celebrate one another more fully. The inspiring stories in The Four Things That Matter Most demonstrate the usefulness of the Four Things in a wide range of life situations. They also show that a degree of emotional healing is always possible and that we can experience a sense of wholeness even in the wake of family strife, personal tragedy, divorce, or in the face of death. With practical wisdom and spiritual punch, The Four Things That Matter Most gives us the language and guidance to honor and experience what really matters most in our lives every day
Beyond symptoms and suffering : human development through the end of life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ira Byock, M.D. (Professor of Anesthesiology and Community and Family Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School and Director of Palliative Medicine, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, New Hampshire and Director of the Palliative Care Service, Missoula, Montana). Dr. Byock addressed a crisis in public health regarding the care and preparation for dying persons. "Denial," Dr. Byock stated is running through the American way of dying and dying needs to be addressed as a part of living and continuing human development. Other major points covered were: a terminology for the end of life experience and care; specificity in psycho-social and spiritual assessment; specificity in psycho-social interventions; and a conceptual framework and terminology for outcomes measurement. Leslie J. Blackhall, M.D., M.T.S. (Associate Professor of Internal Medicine (General Medicine, Geriatrics, and Palliative Care) and Medical Education (Medical Humanities and Biomedical Ethics), University of Virginia) illustrated many of the points made in Dr. Byock's address by sharing a story from her past experience and personal life

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This Atlas Brief and the accompanying data released on the Dartmouth Atlas web site (www.dartmouthatlas.org) report the latest findings on end-of-life cancer care. Since the last Dartmouth Atlas report, the trends in end-of-life cancer care across the country have been mixed. While patients are spending fewer days hospitalized in the last month of life, the number of days in ICUs has increased. Hospice days have also increased, but a growing proportion of patients begin receiving hospice services in the last three days of life, a time period often too short to provide patients the full benefit of hospice care
