Healing and the Grief Process
This new addition to Delmar's Nurse as Healer Series provides an overview of the grieving process by introducing the nurse and other health care professionals to some of the more common theories associated with death and dying. Beginning with an overview of the grieving process, different chapters focus on specific stages of grief and emphasis is placed on the role of the nurse in the healing process. Also included in this insightful book is the hospice philosophy which encompasses four dimensions of support; physical, emotional, social and spiritual and other specific healing strategies designed to be used in working with those in the midst of grief. Dedicated to personal growth, the last part of this book presents vignettes depicting the many phases of grief, as well as a healing approach that will enable the griever to continue living in spite of the loss.(organization, management, administration, OB, organization behavior, nursing administration, leadership, delegation, business, professional executive)
