Abstract: A recent survey of health education teachers in New York State by Capiello and Troyer' revealed that only six of the 209 educators surveyed include consumer aspects in their courses on death and dying. Even though most of the teachers surveyed did not include consumer aspects of death and dying in their courses, coverage of this content area is considered a key goal of death education by many professionals. Because the outcomes of death education are in the form of altered feelings, emotional satisfaction, and an improved mental approach to death, as opposed to overt behavior change, teaching strategies should reflect a strong affective component.
