Overview IVP Print On Demand Title Today's health care workers are seldom taught about the spiritual aspects of mental health---other than to minimize or ignore them. But spiritual needs can play an important role in any illness. This series of essays will help all Christian health care workers learn how they can help people find complete health!
Publishers Description Health--physical, mental, spiritual. All three are closely related. But in modern mental-health care one of them is often neglected. Nurses, social workers and counselors are rarely taught to minister to their client's spiritual needs. In fact, they are sometime told to ignore them altogether. But spiritual needs can play a part in any illness. They may become especially strong when the mind and emotions are affected. So how can Christian workers help their clients spiritually without violating their freedom or antagonizing other members of the health-care team? How can they help their colleagues and keep their own sanity under extremely stressful conditions? Judith Allen Shelly joins Sandra D. John and other mental-health professionals to show how Christians can minister effectively to such deep needs.
