Spiritual Care for Allied Health Practice

A Person-centered Approach

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Providing spiritual care is an important part in administering person-centred holistic care. This textbook explains why it is so important for any allied health professional (AHP) to be involved in, or assist with, the provision of spiritual care for patients and how to do so.

Each chapter addresses a specific field of allied health practice, such as speech-language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and other allied heath areas. The contributors explain how spiritual care can be applied in their specialist area, making it relevant for all AHPs. With contributions from leading academics and practitioners in allied health practice, this book will help AHPs understand how to give patients the complete care that they need, making this text essential reading for AHP practitioners, clinical supervisors, researchers, academics, tertiary lecturers and allied health students.
