Jeanne’s next book will explore how we can remain emotionally connected to each other through the end of life. Based on research, her own work and interviews, she considers the importance of saying goodbye, explores what makes saying the words so difficult, and draws together the many ways people begin these important conversations despite the challenges.
She is developing a simple dream appreciation approach that can be used in long-term care residences, senior centers, and hospice/palliative care units. Unlike dream analysis or dream work, dream appreciation uses the dream to better understand daily life concerns. A few simple questions help dreamers find their own meaning for the dream and then use it to explore their lives.
