CARE OF THE SOUL IN MEDICINE Thomas Moore
Few experiences stir the emotions and throw a person into crisis as illness does, affecting not only the body but the spirit and soul. Yet the current health-care system is not structured around these considerations. Care of the Soul in Medicine is Thomas Moore's vision for improving health care. Moore speaks of the importance of healing a person rather than simply treating a body. While sharing stories from his personal and professional life, he gives advice to both health-care providers and patients for maintaining dignity and humanity, providing spiritual guidance for dealing with feelings of mortality and threat, and encouraging patients to not only take an active part in healing but also to view illness as a positive passage to new awareness.
