Holistic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice, Seventh Edition continues as the definitive resource for holistic nursing for both students and professionals. Completely updated and revised, it includes seven new chapters on creative expressions in healing, herbs and dietary supplements, holistic leadership, holistic nursing education, self-care and self-development, advanced holistic nursing practice, and advanced integrative health and well-being practice demonstrated through case study exemplars.

With an ideal blend of theoretical and practical content, the Seventh Edition features Dr. Dossey’s Theory of Integral Nursing, including an update on global nursing and the UN Millennium goals. There is increased emphasis on teaching holistic nursing in undergraduate and graduate programs, including the use of simulation as an effective teaching pedagogy, an enhanced focus on ways to enrich holistic care to improve patient outcomes through evidence-based practice and research, and new integrative health and wellness assessments. Essential chapters on Nurse Coaching and Dying in Peace, along with all other past chapters, are updated.

Each chapter begins with Nurse Healer Objectives to guide learning within the theoretical, clinical, and personal domains and concludes with Nurse Healer Reflections to encourage readers to reflect on what they have learned. Also featured are helpful Directions for Future Research, definitions of key terms, and case studies that illustrate how to use and integrate the interventions into clinical practice.
