Voice Massage: Scripts for Guided Imagery [With CD-ROM]



Imagery is the language of emotions, of hopes, of dreams. Images can lead patients floating blissfully down a quiet river in Maine, or can leave them stranded in a quagmire of fear, anger, and resentment. Once properly learned, clinicians can utilize this form of behaviour rehearsal to relax an individual, with the promise of escape from the present as the ultimate reward. Voice Massage: Scripts for Guided Imagery helps nurses better utilize this therapeutic method in patient care. Denise Murray Edwards has compiled material with an emphasis on specific techniques for treating oncology patients. For this collection, a number of clinicians have allowed reprinting of the scripts they developed to reduce symptoms such as pain, nausea, and anxiety. Other scripts were created to elicit the relaxation response. All are available for your students to promote healing in their patients, for their own self-care.
