Overview

This market-leading resource in holistic nursing is published in cooperation with the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA). Each chapter is revised and updated by contributors from the best-selling Fifth Edition, as well as new thought leaders from the field of holistic nursing. Chapters begin with Nurse Healer Objectives that are divided into theoretical, clinical, and personal subject areas, and then conclude with Directions for Future Research and Nurse Healer Reflections to encourage readers to delve deeper into the material and reflect on what they have learned in each chapter.

This text is organized by the five core values contained within the Standards of Holistic Nursing Practice:

Core Value 1: Holistic Philosophy, Theories, and Ethics
Core Value 2: Holistic Caring Process
Core Value 3: Holistic Communication, Therapeutic Environment, and Cultural Diversity
Core Value 4: Holistic Education and Research
Core Value 5: Holistic Nurse Self-Care

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Holistic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice, Third Edition is for all nurses who are interested in gaining in-depth knowledge of holistic nursing. The book can be used as a basic text in undergraduate, elective, and continuing education courses.

It provides a user-friendly nursing process format, standards of holistic nursing practice care plans with patient outcomes, outcome criteria, and evaluation guidelines for clinical practice to nurses in acute care, home care, and hospice, and those who are clinical specialists, educators, and bedside practitioners.

The third edition of this very popular textbook includes eight new chapters along with extensive reorganization and revision. An instructor's manual is also available.

Editorial Reviews

Jean O'Neil
This second edition defines holistic nursing as a body-mind-spirit process for peace in living or dying. The format is consistent from the introduction to holistic nursing and ideas of nurse-self-client, psychophysiology, change processes, and ethics in nursing interventions. Each section addresses nursing healer objectives, pertinent definitions, theory and research, nursing process, directions for further research, nurse healer reflections, and recommended resources. The authors aim to explore unity and relatedness of persons as well as aspects of being, to expand understanding of healing and nurse as healer, and to develop strategies to strengthen the whole person. The designated audience includes students of nursing, clinicians, educators, and researchers. Detailed content, attention to both nurse and client, and case studies in hospital and community settings are special features of the book. This is an informative book by highly qualified nurse authors for individuals, libraries, and healthcare agencies where there are interests or questions about holistic nursing. It has pertinent illustrations and substantive presentations of assessment and intervention strategies as well as the theory-research basis for this approach to healing.
Jane W. Swanson
Watson's forward probably says it best: "The third edition of Holistic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice, while building upon the seminal work of the first two editions, takes a quantum leap forward... offering a blueprint for holistic nursing for the next era in nursing's history, unveiling the latest and most contemporary thinking in the field" (p. xxvii). This expanded edition is a discussion of questions regarding the body of nursing knowledge and nursing's contract with society. The editors ask: if healing is the domain of all disciplines, including the primary focus of the individual, what are the contributions of nurses? With this handbook they provide the latest guidance and practice suggestions for integration of complementary and integrated interventions. An additional benefit is the inclusion of multiple previously published journal articles making a fuller reference guide than the second edition of 1995. The intent is to help nurses develop an integrated approach for nursing practice which involves patients as participants in all phases of their care. The contributors focus on topics or clinical interventions to help nurses shape a practice that integrates body, mind, and complementary therapies with traditional approaches to practice. The theoretical and research based interventions are outlined and approaches for evaluation are suggested. Nurses are also offered guidance for further study and certification in alternative and complementary therapies. The book contains excellent self-assessment tools so nurses can reflect on their own healing and awaken the inner healer that models a wellness lifestyle and heightened self-awareness. Although the primary audience forthis work is the holistic nurse, the content and focus are presented in ways which are relevant to nurses in all practice settings. I would give this book the highest rating and recommend it as essential to any nurse's library.

Holistic nursing incorporates bodymind and transpersonal therapies such as meditation and relaxation imagery. This work expands an understanding of healing and the nurse as an instrument of healing, explores the unity and relatedness of nurses and clients, and develops caring-healing interventions to strengthen the whole person.
