This is a twenty-three minutes’ film published in 2009 by Kanopy. The film, as the title
says, is a guide for assisting professionals in helping people who are terminally ill. Virginia Satir
developed a model to explain the change process. She believed that every change consists of six
stages, starting from entrance of foreign elements into a person's status quo to the ultimate
growth as well as learning. The film tells the story of Debbie Ellington, a woman who is
terminally ill. It also tells the story of hospice workers. However, the story of Debbie is the focus
of the film. Debbie tells the story of her terminal cancer diagnosis. She discusses how difficult it
was to learn of her cancer as well as the physical and emotional pain she experienced after the
diagnosis. Satir’s model uses chaos and foreign elements stage to explain how Debbie’s life
changed due to her cancer. The film also discusses the change from the perspective of hospice
employees. Some members of staff are presented talking about their life experiences working in
the hospice. They discuss some emotional cases and the way they move with patients through the
change model stages presented by Satir. The hospice workers emphasize the essentiality of selfcare as well as supporting each other in helping their patients. The film fully covers every step of
the change model and explains how this model, like every change, cycles over and over again
through the lives of people.
