I received official word that ADEC (Association for Death Education and Counseling) has approved me to take the Thanatology exam. You may remember that I am starting to look at transitioning to bereavement and this certification is the next step. The test will be November 7. They sent me a study guide and recommended a few tomes. As I would prefer to pass this test the first try, I started reading Death & Dying, Life & Living on the plane to and from Nashville (finally a vacation!); it's a good overview of the palliative and hospice world and appears to be a wealth of information so far. Wish me luck!
