Description

Spirituality and Health: Multidisciplinary Explorations examines the relationship between health/well-being and spirituality. Chap-lains and pastoral counsellors offer evidence-based research on the importance of spirituality in holistic health care, and practitioners in the fields of occupational therapy, clinical psychology, nursing, and oncology share how spirituality enters into their healing practices. Unique for its diversity, this collection explores the relationship between biomedical, psychological, and spiritual points of view about health and healing.

Editorial Reviews

"Characterized by careful attention to the latest research...Spirituality and Health: Multidisciplinary Explorations presents a quite positive approach to a useful conversation among theoreticians and practitioners involved in health care, whether their primary concern is the spiritual or physical needs of their patients/clients.... [T]he authors and editors...are to be commended for an excellent and well-grounded volume that takes seriously the concerns of many...that health care deal with the whole person.... The writing is accessible and enlightening to the non-professional, as well as to those who work as pastoral counselors or chaplains."

— Canadian Ethnic Studies, 40: 1, 2008

"The multidisciplinary perspective becomes the lens that brings to light the exceptional contribution of both health-care and pastoral workers. The bibliography and resource materials are extensive."

— Toronto Journal of Theology, 23: 1, Spring 2007

"Deftly co-edited and compiled...Spirituality and Health presents an invaluable reference for all readers seeking an understanding of their spiritual-self's contribution to their physical wellness."

— Midwest Book Review
