Description

"Working across boundaries: Creating effective Transdisciplinary pathways for compassionate care"by Professor Holly Nelson-Becker

Professor Holly Nelson-Becker is a recognised scholar in end-of-life and palliative care, aging, resilience, wellbeing, spirituality, religion, and aging. A registered social work professional in the UK and the US, she has led social work inter-professional training jointly with physicians, nurses, and chaplain groups.

Her recent 2018 book based on a number of her research studies, Spirituality, Religion, and Aging: Illuminations for Therapeutic Practice helps multi-professional groups better understand and work with client spiritual, religious, and existential needs.

Another aim was to assist professionals to develop their own understanding of the area through guided meditations and exercises to expand understanding.
