It is clear that most all of us understand that we will die. We just don’t expect it to happen in our lifetimes. When someone asks me at a social gathering what I do, and I explain that I talk about death and dying, my interlocutor, after exclaiming, “How interesting!” usually turns the conversation elsewhere or, alternatively, just turns himself elsewhere. Why discuss dying when we can talk sports, politics, fashion, food, travel…anything more immediately rewarding.

Susan Abel Lieberman, Ph.D. has lived in nine cities, written eight books, directed four educational programs, earned three graduate degrees, raised two sons and thinks, one day, she may, perhaps, acquire a partridge in a pear tree.

The unifying theme in all her work has been a desire to help people find satisfying resolutions to the situations that arise from leading busy, complicated lives and to grow into their best selves. “I feel so lucky to have four decades of work that always felt important to me. I hope it has also felt important to others. There is no doubt I am kinder, wiser and more tolerant as the result of having diverse and often difficult challenges to hit up against.”

In 2009 Susan co-founded  an end-of-life consultancy, The Y Collaborative, with Nancy Rust in Houston, Texas. Although Susan sold her interest in The Y Collaborative, many of her blog posts continue to appear on the site.

Currently, she is focused on helping young adults find work that will be satisfying.
