Research shows that non-responsive patients benefit significantly from spiritual and pastoral care. This book equips chaplains with the confidence and skills to deliver excellent care in this challenging context. With exercises, worksheets, small group activities and case studies, it sets out how best to use words and body language, foster trust and respect, and involve patients' loved ones. It provides practical ways to recognise and affirm the humanity of the patient, and how to engage with the patient by employing skills of listening and presence.

Many chaplains and chaplain-interns will be exclaiming: "Where has this book been before now!?" Golding and Dixon have given us a much-needed, ethically sensitive, pithy, and eminently practical guide to spiritual care with a particularly challenging patient population, affirming that silence and the "ministry of presence" is a profound gift to both patients and their families - and can be a deepening spiritual experience for the caregiver as well. -- Pamela Cooper-White, Christiane Brooks Johnson Professor of Psychology and Religion, Union Theological Seminary, New York, and author of Shared Wisdom: Use of the Self in Pastoral Care and Counseling SPIRITUAL SUPPORT FOR NON-COMMUNICATIVE PATIENTS is an important guide for chaplains, clinicians and caregivers. This book offers practical and spirit filled insights into techniques for being with patients and families whose lives are on hold. Read it, teach it, welcome it. -- Harold G. Koenig, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Associate Professor of Medicine, Director, Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina
