Spirituality in Integrative Medicine

Ratings: (0)|Views: 172 |Likes:
Integrative medicine includes spirituality as an important value to consider in patients’ health and healing. This orientation acknowledges an invisible, yet felt, quality to our being, to our illness, and to our wellness. What exactly is spirituality in integrative medicine and how do we recognize spiritual issues and support patients’ spiritual or religious needs in culturally competent ways? This narrative review explores clinical applications of spirituality in integrative medicine. Clinical applications include (1) cultural competency, (2) spiritual assessment, (3) acceptance of atheism, (4) the ability to understand spiritual emergency and spiritual distress, (5) psychotherapy, (6) meditation as a secular intervention, (7) ceremony and retreats, and (8) prayer.
