About the Book

Human stories are the core of identity and meaning. This book is an invitation to the engaging and reforming power of telling stories. It is also an invitation to heal the story of health care for older adults by improving the communication between professionals in medicine, psychology, and religion.

At any age the process of genuinely listening and expressing hopes and fears is an intimacy rarely matched in human interaction. Life stories can be told, revised, and rewritten through psychotherapy and improved by a health care which integrates the best of medicine, religion, and psychology. This book invites health care reform by renewing old principles. Through clinical experience, research, and listening to seniors and their families, life stories can be retold to promote healthy treatment and healthy aging. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in psychology, medicine, nursing, religion, and social work.
