A friend of mine who uses logotherapy in her work as a nurse for seriously ill patients has been discussing with me her ideas about how to teach the nursing staff practical ways of incorporating the healing power of logotherapy with their patients.
Please send your comments to this post if you have any ideas. What can hospital nurses do in a practical way that would be more of a help to the people they are serving? Whatever suggestions you offer will extend way beyond the border of myself and help a very great number of people.
I answered her with the idea of giving a workshop on how to help people find meaning in their suffering – not in the suffering itself but in who they can become, strengths gained through the suffering. Of course this has to be done sensitively, by first acknowledging the person’s pain.
