Spirituality, Ethics and Care

The book includes chapters on ethics, religion and spirituality; the community of care; fit for purpose; values, virtues and the patient, and challenging faith. This is a welcome addition for the practitioners and those training in human services.'

- Nursing Standard

Spirituality, Ethics and Care provides guidance on how to integrate spirituality and ethics in professional and voluntary care.

The author argues that the strong connections between moral meaning and spirituality are often not reflected in the health and social care literature. Using case studies and examples from everyday situations, such as end of life decisions, conjoined twins, heart conditions, social work, mental health and emergency care practice, the author provides a practical framework for incorporating spirituality into ethical decision-making and care.

This book will encourage and inspire social workers, healthcare professionals and church pastoral practitioners.

Press reviews for: Spirituality, Ethics and Care

Scottish Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy

Throughout the book Robinson uses case studies to illustrate and explore his themes to great effect. The discussion is clear and well structured. Each chapter ends with a concise summary - the conclusions then link in to the following chapter... Perhaps the lines on the back cover should read "This book should be essential reading for social workers, healthcare professionals and church pastoral practitioners".
