  13. Spirituality is whatever gives a person meaning, worth and value. Unique to each individual, for some that can be their religion, for others music, nature, family, friends etc

  14. “Spirituality is a slippery word these days, involving anything from monasticism to wind chimes, but I have never been able to resist tinkering under the bonnet of the soul. No longer convinced by the absolutes of my childhood, I nevertheless hankered after something to replace them, a workable credo with which to engage life.” (Adrift in Caledonia, Boathitching for the Unenlightened Nick Thorpe 2006)

  15. Spiritual Care 1-2-1 relationship, completely person centred and makes no assumptions personal conviction or life orientation . Spiritual Care is not always religious. Religious care at it's best should always be spiritual.

  16. Why Listen to Stories? • Central explanation of ourselves • They haunt or inspire • Help bind our world together and give a sense of place and purpose • We all have a luminous world below the surface, a world offered as a gift to others….if we are asked. • (Barack Obama : Dreams from my Father)

  17. Who gives spiritual care? We all do!!! “How are you doing tonight?” = Spiritual Care

  18. Indicators of spiritual distress • Why me? Why Now? • Putting on a brave face - I mustn’t let my family down. • “I can’t take anymore” • “I’d be better off dead” • Talks more of religion/God/afterlife • Turns face to the wall

  19. Addressing Spiritual Needs/Distress- Recognise The need to give and receive love The need to be understood The need to be valued as a human being The need for forgiveness, hope and trust The need to explore beliefs and values The need to express feelings honestly The need to find meaning and purpose in life.

  20. People are not merely physical bodies requiring mechanical fixing. Some find their spirituality helps maintain their health and helps them cope with illness, trauma, loss, change as body, mind & spirit integrate. Whether religious or not people share deep needs as they try to make sense of & maintain hope when illness or injury strikes.
