An invitation for all nurses to re-engage with the passion and commitment that originally inspired them! ...represents an act of passion for the profession, a window to a personal journey, and an invitation to view the nursing profession's contribution to healing in a Jungian context....The work's value comes from its integration of scientific, creative, and spiritual philosophies as a core context for the complex nurse-patient interaction involved in the promotion of a healing environment....Recommended."--Choice Nursing is at a crossroads, facing shortages of unparalleled proportion at a time when society is experiencing health care challenges of great magnitude. At the center of professional nursing lies the authentic presence of the nurse, the intention and commitment that brings nurses to the profession in the first place. When there is congruence between who nurses are and what they do, nurses bring their souls to work. This balance is experienced as a healing presence that encourages the patient's self-healing capacity. Throughout this book, JoEllen Koerner explores ways--scientific, creative, and spiritual--of understanding the power and impact of this "healing presence" on both the caregiver and those receiving care. Wisdom from the field is presented in a series of reflections from multiple areas of practice. For all nurses and nursing students, the book offers practical application strategies for integrating the nursing process with the nurse's presence and a framework for personal and professional development.

Do images heal? Yes they do. That is the thesis of renowned photographer A. J. Meek with these photographs of the clouds paired with children’s perceptions of hope. “The feeling of freedom is exhilarating,” Meek says in his photographer’s comments for the work contained within. “The total package of sky and children’s perception is designed to evoke a positive healing attitude within the viewer. When studied and meditated upon, the audience cannot maintain a negative thought.” Heavily influenced by Native American culture, these pictures, which were made in New Mexico and Louisiana, promote a feeling of well-being and inspiration. To be in the world but not of it is certainly the road less traveled and the most challenging for there are no earthly rewards for this choice¾only peace.

Here is a book that takes seriously the response of Jesus to those who cry out to him in faith for his healing presence and who look for that on going presence in his community that is called the church.
Author: Peter Varengo
Publisher: Wipf and Stock
The Gospel of Mark is generally accepted as the earliest of the four accounts of the life and ministry of Jesus. Central to Mark's portrait of Jesus is an emphasis on his healing presence among the people of God - a sign of the living and active presence of God, offering not only physical healing but completeness and restoration of spirit in the midst of brokenness and pain. For Mark, this is the God revealed by Jesus in his public ministry: a God driven by an obsessive persistence to reach out to people in healing, sustenance and companionship. One of the ways we learn from the long teaching tradition of our church is by listening and sharing the Scriptures, broken for us each Sunday at Mass, offered to us by faithful preaching of the Word of God or by thoughtful reflection in classroom and other settings. The task of preachers, teachers and commentators is somehow to bring the selected readings to life so that they connect with our lives as we gather to worship, to listen, to be strengthened and encouraged in our life of faith week by week. This new series of reflections on the Sunday Gospels in the year of Mark are not concerned primarily to be a commentary on the text but on the message of the text; their purpose is not so much to inform as to inspire. The reflections by a master craftsman are written to unpack the Gospel - not simply Mark's special theological emphases but his teaching about how we are to live with one another in the stuff of the everyday. Integral to the book is the author's assumption that life and faith belong together; that God, the source of life and wholeness in our lives, is lavish with gifts to us, patient and energising for completion and healing, for life in its fullness. Here is a book that takes seriously the response of Jesus to those who cry out to him in faith for his healing presence and who look for that on going presence in his community that is called the church. The book is for priests and preachers, parents and teachers, and for all of us who seek the transformation and fullness of life that God offers us in the breaking of the Word and who have the courage and the wisdom to accept the challenges of the Word and incarnate its message in our daily lives. Peter Varengo is a Salesian priest presently engaged in full time Adult Retreat Ministry. He studied Theology at the Salesian University in Rome; and Religious Education in Maynooth (Ireland) and in Boston College (USA). He has taught at Catholic Theological College in Melbourne and been involved in parish ministry for many years.

Author: Richard Cork
Fascinated by the astonishingly rich history of art in hospitals, the well-known critic and art historian Richard Cork has written a brilliant account of the subject. These works, which include masterpieces of Western art, have been produced from Renaissance Florence and Siena to the 20th century. Piero della Francesca made a painting for a hospital in Sansepolcro, as did Hans Memling in Bruges, Matthias Grünewald in Isenheim, El Greco in Toledo, Rembrandt in Amsterdam, William Hogarth in London, Vincent van Gogh in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Marc Chagall in Jerusalem. The book's sumptuous images offer a rich range of subjects, from Francisco Goya's dramatic confrontations with suffering to Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's sublime, airborne celebrations of resurrection and heavenly ecstasy. Some, like Leonardo da Vinci's incisive drawings, are based on uncompromising firsthand study of hospital patients. Others explore a redemptive world where Christ is born, orphans are rescued, and plague victims are given shelter. In this wide-ranging survey, Cork investigates how such artworks have been used to humanize hospitals, to alleviate their clinical bleakness, and to offer genuine, lasting pleasure to patients, staff, and visitors.

Nearly half of people at the end of life will receive hospice care, but few psychologists, nurses, physicians, chaplains, and hospice workers have been trained specifically to recognize and address the psychological, social, and emotional issues that may arise in patients who are dying. Patients in the midst of advanced terminal illness may experience a variety of distressing emotions, and may feel anxious, frightened, regretful, or desperate. This guide was created specifically to guide helping professionals of all kinds through the process of working through patients’ psychological issues to allow them peace and comfort in their final moments. The Helping Professional’s Guide to End-of-Life Care clarifies the spiritual and emotional care that patients need and presents an evidence-based approach integrating cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), transpersonal psychotherapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, and guided imagery to help patients manage emotional distress at the end of life. Through case conceptualizations and detailed treatment planning guidance, readers learn to formulate comprehensive assessment and treatment plans for patients and gain skills that will help them manage the emotional intensity of this work. This secular, professional treatment model can be applied to patients of any religious or spiritual background. The book also addresses integrating the patient’s therapeutic team with the medical team, addressing the emotional needs of friends and family of the dying, crisis intervention for suicidal patients, working with clients on psychotropic medications, and how helping professionals can manage their own emotions to become more effective clinicians.
