Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


This paper explores a hospice as context for relatives' emotional management. Based on a field study the findings reveal that an institutionalized approach of open emotional awareness of dying attempts to influence relatives' emotional behaviour. While some relatives' emotional management strategies are in tune with this ideal for good dying others tend to 'silently' avoid it.
