SOUL INJURY® – As a Resource in the Work of Spiritual Care and Palliative Care

Negative events that occurred to us recently or a long time ago can affect our behavior in our private as well as our work lives. Often times, they can unconsciously limit us in our vitality and we encounter the same or similar problems over again. The arising feelings are acknowledged as uncomfortable and thus pushed aside. “Why should I burden myself with this again?”, is what we may ask ourselves. This, in spite of those exact feelings being signals that aim to invoke our inner vitality. They want attention in order for them to finally be able to live in peace with and within us. The signals that we, more often than not, experience as negative, are the ones that could return enormous strength and vitality to us. Today we know that an onerous event can evoke a Soul Injury  which is found in unresolved loss and in unforgotten or rather not-dealt with feelings of guilt or shame. An affected individual is restricted in his/her vitality and many times may suffer unrecognized. Kids may be affected as well. Once the Soul Injury is recognized and worked with, we can feel strengthen and peacefully live in peace. That event is to be described with new inner as well as outer vitality. Soul Injury is recommended by therapeutic PTSD, chronic crises and stress interventions. In the application, the afflicted learn how to master losses, failures, disappointments and how forgive oneself as well as others.
In Europe too, there are people who have a difficult past and may still suffer from it. Let us consider: Verdingkinder, victims of mental and physical violence, war or terror victims, soldiers, first responder, refugees, victims of bullying, people with severe chronic diseases, people who have been hit by an environmental catastrophe, etc. The professional inner-spiritual accompaniment, that the concept of SOUL INJURY® offers e.g. with the special reflection work, helps us Experts to optimize our communicative competence in crisis interventions. In the praxis of Spiritual Care, the knowledge of Soul Injury  is an essential resource for professionals that work in counseling or any support of vulnerable people.

Spiritual Care

In very difficult life situations, too, there are opportunities to gain confidence, strength and hope. Spiritual Care also offers to accompany people in hardships for example trauma and search for meaning as well as crisis-coping according to their existential, spiritual and religious demands. Spiritual Care service is neutral in denomination, meaning regardless of your belief or origin.

"Spirituality can be an important element in the way patients face chronic illness, suffering, and loss. Physicians need to address and be attentive to all suffering of their patients—physical, emotional, and spiritual. Doing so is part of delivery of compassionate care. I think we can be better physicians and true partners in our patients' living and in their dying if we can be compassionate: if we truly listen to their hopes, their fears, and their beliefs and incorporate these beliefs into their therapeutic plans"
Christina M. Puchalski MD, MS

Palliative Care

WHO Definition: Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Palliative care increases patient and family satisfaction, it improves quality and it has been shown to help to extend survival. The resulting cost savings are an unintended but welcome consequence of providing high quality care. This approach results in higher quality, well-planned treatment that anticipates future care needs and helps to avoid unwanted and expensive crisis care.
