Description - Integrative Health Promotion in Nursing Practice by Susan Leddy

This volume is a comprehensive textbook that integrates the conceptual and theoretical bases of lifestyle approaches to health promotion and holistic approaches to healing. Through the exploration of the theoretical and evidence bases for a variety of non-invasive therapeutic interventions, the text stimulates thought and foundations for practice. The book addresses the elements of healing as a goal of nursing, as contrasted with curing. Creating a helping relationship that is characterized by presence (being rather than doing), mindfulness, respect, genuineness, active listening, empathy, and the therapeutic use of self is one goal discussed within the text. Promoting community health through empowerment strategies, and ecocentric approaches to global health are also presented.
