With appropriate training, psychologists are particularly suited to carry out clinical roles in assessment, intervention, advocacy, and interdisciplinary service delivery. Assessment at the end of life includes several areas such as evaluation of mood and anxiety disorders, pain, family and caregiver interactions, psychological and cognitive functioning, and existential concerns. Psychologists are also well prepared to plan and implement interventions with individuals, family members, and providers. They can treat clinical depression if and when it arises in end-of-life contexts, as well as other mental health problems. Psychologists can provide end-of-life counseling including facilitating emotional expression, helping caregivers to appreciate the psychological dimensions of the suffering involved, and being effective listeners and sounding boards for people who are dying, their families and caregivers, and even their health care providers. Properly trained psychologists can also work effectively with issues of mourning and loss, traumatic stress, and general objectives for care of dying individuals (Weisman, 1972). They can also serve as advocates for good medical care along with other professionals (., nurses, social workers, and chaplains).
