Its an area where nothing feels “safe” and everything is threatened with reexamination and redefinition.

Accompanying this situation is a new appreciation for the human spirit and the gift of things spiritual, including the soul of the work place. Addressing this situation is a vital new book Health Care & Spirituality: Listening, Assessing, Caring an anthology of the human predicament, the health care professionals story and the health care work place. Health Care & Spirituality explores this area that is continually being introduced to new treatments, new challenges, new people, new regulations, new expectations, and new time limits. While no one likes to feel marginalized,unfortunately people often are by gender, race, sexual preference and other areas commonly addressed in social discourse.

Health Care & Spirituality addresses the marginalization that accompanies disease, trauma and dying and how the care that must be provided by professionals is easily marginalized by the language of the “bottom line,” regulations, managed care, and human limits. It is brought together around the common theme of spirituality, the spirit of the patient, the spirit of the work place, and the spirit which transcends it all to give meaning to it. The theme of the book is listening, to the patients whole story- assessing, or giving meaning in conversation with the patient- and caring, for the whole person and the whole story.Health Care & Spirituality is a book of stories as well as a book of instruction and information.

It highlights the important drive of spirituality and spiritual awareness, as it is enhanced by the gifts of chaplains and spiritual caregivers working together for the common good of patients, families and providers.Health Care & Spirituality not only inspires with its definitions and pathways,but introduces us to the particular professional groups (nurse, chaplain), gender and faith groupings (male, female, Roman Catholic, Jewish, Native American, non-descript spirituality and spiritual diversity), and a variety of patient types (trauma, medical, Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgendered, obstetrics, HIV/AIDS, addicted, Alzheimers, the dying adult and the dying child) bringing into these stories what spirituality is.
