Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eileen Trigoboff, RN, CS, DNS (Buffalo Psychiatric Center)
Description: This book is the first of its kind in the Delmar book series Nurse as Healer. It guides nurses through the demanding abstractions of client care, i.e., the client's spiritual experiences.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce the meaning of a crisis as a challenge; evaluate crises in relation to the body, the mind, and the spirit; look at special client situations; and examine tools for dealing with crises. These are worthy objectives; a book like this is needed in the nursing profession. On most levels this book meets its objectives. Sometimes it does range a bit far afield of focusing on crises, in that spirituality in the crisis takes center stage. This spotlight on spirituality does, however, return to practical application issues.
Audience: This book is written for the practicing nurse, although the nonpsychiatric nursing specialty areas seem to be targeted. Both authors, and the single contributor, are credible sources for the topic of this book. The authors belong to the American Holistic Nurses Association and one author chairs the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA) International Committee.
Features: The few illustrations structure the concepts of spirituality and crisis. The topic of the book does not lend itself to extensive illustrations, and they are not necessary. The references are reasonably extensive given that the field is not as well published as other topics. The references listed in each chapter contain items recognized as classic as well as current contributions. The table of contents and the index are detailed, clear, and useful. The overall appearance of the book is pleasant. There is no color in the text, which can be used to highlight certain features and make the text more interesting. The case study section of each chapter is set apart from the rest of the text with margin changes — a nice, clear effect. The case studies themselves are an excellent feature, relevant and touching. They help illustrate the practical application of the chapter material.
Assessment: This would be a very good book for critical care, hospice, and other nursing specialties with some usefulness across all practice areas. The use of nursing diagnoses with a particular situation and the plan of care associated with it is a good way to practically address a difficult nursing care issue. Although crises form the basis of the book, spirituality seems to be the major thrust of the content. This book should be purchased as a holistic guide for crises.
