Overview

Thoroughly updated, the new edition of this award-winning book looks at spirituality and nursing from many perspectives: theoretical, historical, religious, psychological, physiological. In this thoughtful exploration of the reemergence of spirituality as an important factor in nursing practice, the author traces nursing's involvement with spirituality from its historical ties with religion to the current interest in New Age and alternative health methods. Nursing theories involving spirituality such as Dossey, Newman, and Watson, are examined, and nursing trends are seen in the larger context of trends in society and other disciplines, such as psychology, physics and philosophy. In this new edition there is more information on techniques and therapies for incorporating spirituality into patient care.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Patricia Blagman
This book reviews the role of spirituality in nursing historically and discusses the concept within traditional and New Age nursing theories. New Age spiritual therapeutics such as energy work, therapeutic touch, and imagery are briefly described. The author wanted to present her thoughts and perceptions of spirituality as it affects working nurses. The author provides a theoretical approach rather than a clinical or practical approach. This book is written for nurses, and it is appropriate for nurses. Although the author is widely respected for her work in nursing management and theory in nursing, this is a first work on this topic. The distinguishing feature of this work is the analysis of spirituality in traditional theorists used in nursing, Maslow and Erickson, and in current nursing theorists Watson, Newman, and Dossey. This book is more theoretical than practical. It describes the inclusion of spiritual concepts in the newer nursing theories. It also discusses theoretical issues that will need to be addressed as nurses return more and more to the spiritual aspects of care.
