Spirituality in Nursing: From Traditional to New Age, Second Edition / Edition 2

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.
