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.
