Reviews - What do customers think about Caring for Those in Crisis: Facing Ethical Dilemmas with Patients and Families?

Excellent Customer Service  Aug 25, 2008
Book arrived on time and in excellent condition. I will order from your company again. Great customer service.
Advocacy  Feb 21, 2008
Kenneth Mottram wants pastors to be better advocates for their parishioners facing a medical crisis. So he explores what such advocacy should look like, and he explains ethical principles from biblical and medical perspectives.

Especially helpful is his five step procedure for making tough ethical decisions: 1) gather information; 2) clarify personal values; 3) clarify larger ethical principles; 4) prioritize acceptable options and make a decision; 5) evaluate the decision. Helpful, too, was his discussion of the "Five Wishes" approach to advance directives.

Mottram, a Baptist, writes from a conservative Protestant perspective, and his ideas may require adaptation for those in other traditions, for example, a priest working within a sacramental theology.

Overall, a useful book for clergy and for anyone caring for the ill or injured.
A Christian Distinctive for Facing Ethical Dilemmas  Sep 27, 2007
As a hospital chaplain Kenneth P. Mott ram, is faced with helping patients or their families face ethical questions during crisis situations, on a daily basis. "Caring for those in Crisis" is written to be a help pastors and church leaders to minister to those families.

New procedures in modern medicine and medical technology have created questions of medical ethics and resulting spiritual dilemmas for the Christian. These changes have often resulted in depersonalizing patient care. The role of the pastor takes on a new significance in counseling in these ethical areas. The book provides a model for making ethical decisions.

Mottram addresses issues such as organ transplants, living wills, and life support measures. Other issues such as self-determination, suicide, advance care planning and personal loss and grief are also considered in depth. Drawing from his own personal clinical experiences, Mottram uses actual stories of patients in crisis, the medical evaluation and recommendation, the response of the family, and the outcome of the decisions made.

I personally found the importance of patient advocacy to be particularly helpful in light of intervention on the part of the spiritual advocate.

"Caring for those in Crisis: Facing Ethical Dilemmas with Patients and Families" is an important, timely book. Pastors, counselors, and seminary students will benefit from Kenneth Mottram's insight and articulate presentation of principles for patient advocacy, and family counseling in light of health care evaluations in times of crisis.
