Talking About Spirituality in Health Care Practice by Gillian White

Book Description

Health care professionals who endeavour to work holistically face a number of questions about spirituality. What is meant by 'spirituality' as opposed to 'religion'? What is its specific relevance to health care practice? This accessible book provides answers to these questions and offers a model for personal and professional development. Gillian White sets out a framework within which health care professionals can discuss spirituality and equip themselves to respond appropriately to the spiritual concerns of their patient in daily practice. She draws on her experience of sharing and discussing spirituality and spiritual care with other health care professionals and proposes that multi-professional health care teams should talk about spirituality in challenging but safe environments to develop shared understanding of it, and to increase their confidence about integrating spiritual care into their daily practise. This text is a useful contribution to the multi-disciplinary, whole-person approach in health care and will be of interest to all health care professionals, nursing staff and students in these fields.

Lyric Shame by Gillian White Lyric Shame, Hardback (October 2014)

Gillian White argues that the poetry wars among critics and practitioners are shaped by "lyric shame"--an unspoken but pervasive embarrassment over what poetry is, should be, and fails to be. "Lyric" is less a specific genre than a way to project subjectivity onto poems--an idealized poem that is nowhere and yet everywhere.

Spotlight on Britain by Gillian White Spotlight on Britain, Paperback (June 1990)

Providing insights into life in the different regions of Britain, this book covers a variety of topics, such as London, TV and Radio, Liverpool and the Beatles, Stratford and Shakespeare, and Northern Ireland. It also includes comprehension questions, discussion topics, quizzes and games, with an answer key at the back.
