Lorraine M. Wright, RN, PhD. Suffering & Spirituality: The Path to Illness Healing. (2017) 4th Floor Press: Calgary, AB
After twelve years, I revisited the first edition of my book with new research, new illness narratives and provided guidance and advice for individuals/families experiencing illness suffering and for helping professionals seeking to soften their suffering.
Spirituality and Suffering: The Path to Illness Healing offers a holistic model, the Trinity Model, emphasizing suffering, spirituality, and illness beliefs. Actual clinical examples are provided to show how to integrate, implement, and enhance health professionals spiritual care practices that soften suffering with patients and families experiencing serious illness, disability, or loss.
