With a focus on both quality of life and economic imperatives, interdisciplinary authors describe the management of specific diseases and related physical and psychological symptoms, and care of patients during the dying process. They cover assessment of key symptoms and pharmacological, non-pharmacological, and complementary interventions. Taking a life-span approach, the book includes age-appropriate nursing considerations.

Acupressure involves fingers to add pressure to areas of the body. A pamphlet will help by showing those who want to learn how to do the procedure where to place the fingers and the areas where acupressure shouldn't be used. Information is available about how long the pressure should be held and the benefits of using acupressure. There are also some people who shouldn't use the treatment because of health concerns, and a pamphlet would go into more detail with this information.
Behandeln Sie kleine emotionale Verletzungen, bevor sie zu großen Wunden werden. Auf ein aufgeschlagenes Knie kleben wir ein Pflaster. Was aber unternehmen wir, um die seelischen Verletzungen zu behandeln, die wir im Alltag erleiden? Oft fehlen uns dafür wirksame Mittel. Gleich zum Therapeuten zu gehen ist nicht immer sinnvoll, denn viele seelische Verletzungen sind nicht so schwer, dass sie professionelle Hilfe erfordern. Vergleichbar einem Medizinschränkchen mit Verbandszeug, Salben und Schmerzmitteln für die Grundversorgung körperlicher Alltagsverletzungen möchte dieses Buch eine Hausapotheke für die kleineren seelischen Verletzungen sein, die wir uns im täglichen Leben holen. Guy Winch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt in die Behandlung der häufigsten psychischen Verwundungen ein: Zurückweisung, Einsamkeit, Verlust, Schuldgefühle, Grübeln, Scheitern und ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl – hier lernen Sie, wie Sie mit emotionalen Wunden wirksam umgehen und so zu mehr Resilienz und Selbstvertrauen finden. »So sollte Selbsthilfe sein – effektiv und heilsam. In Emotionale Erste Hilfe findet jeder Techniken zur Selbstfürsorge für die eigene seelische Hausapotheke.« – Meg Selig, Psychology Today

The co-developer of Therapeutic Touch encourages us to acknowledge our own innate healing abilities and provides experiential exercises to teach the basic techniques of this widely used healing modality.
Tarot for the Healing Heart has a simple premise: now is the time to begin healing and resolution. To heal is to make whole. Dis-ease (being out of ease) can manifest as physical or emotional pain, broken relationships, or spiritual unrest. The message of dis-ease is one of hope. The possibilities of the future exist now--not as fantasies, but through the exercise of free choice in the present. Through choice, the future grows as the fruits of our present healing actions. In Part One of Tarot for the Healing Heart, you will learn how to create a healing atmosphere, including creating sacred space, centering, and dream work. In Part Two, explore the meaning of illness and learn to understand your own personal patterns of dis-ease and healing, including letting go of fear. Health attracts health, and Part Three examines healing as a lifestyle. This section includes healing meditations and visualizations designed to awaken your inner healer as well as methods of pain reduction. Part Four explores how to use the entire tarot deck for the express purpose of healing. In-depth descriptions of each card include the card's life lesson and life wisdom. You do not need to be a tarot expert or a healing practitioner to benefit from this book. All you need is a desire to heal, an open mind, and a courageous heart.
