Beskrivning

Explores the end-of-life spiritual needs of people who do not identify with traditional religions.

This groundbreaking book addresses the spiritual aspect of hospice care for those who do not fit easily within traditional religious beliefs and categories.

A companion volume to Religious Understandings of a Good Death in Hospice Palliative Care, this work also advocates for renewed attention to the spiritual, the often overlooked element of hospice care.

Drawing on data from clinical case studies, new sociological research, and the perspectives of agnostics, atheists, those who emphasize the spiritual rather than institutional dimensions of a traditional religion, and the rapidly growing cohort of those who describe themselves as spiritual-but-not-religious, the contributors to this volume interpret the shift from predominantly Christian-based pastoral services to a new approach to »the spiritual» shaped by the increasing diversity of Western societies and new understandings of the nature of secular society.

How do we speak of this »spirituality?»

How do we use it in a way that enables caregivers to assist patients?

Clinicians and policy makers will appreciate the book's practical recommendations regarding staff roles, training, and resource allocation.

General readers will be moved by the persuasive call for greater religious and spiritual literacy at every level of health care in order to respond to the full spectrum of human needs in life and in death. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
