Revue de presse
A much-needed, well-written, and full-of-wisdom guide to help care for the caregiver. Nurses and other healing professionals will benefit immensely from these clear and helpful mindfulness tools and practices. I imagine a quiet revolution in hospitals as nurses begin to embody mindfulness and compassion, transforming their own lives and the lives of everyone they touch. --Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education, UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center
This book teaches nurses how to use mindfulness to connect with what is happening around them. It provides them with a healthy way to do more than practice nursing; it teaches them how to care for themselves, flourish in their role, and reduce the risk of errors. --Kenya V. Beard, EdD, AGACNP-BC, NP-C, CNE, ANEF, American Journal of Nursing, Jan 2018, Vol 118, No 1
Every staff nurse reading this book will say, YES! This is nursing!' Every nurse often asks the question, 'How can I manage that situation better?' Within the wisdom of this book are solutions. The suggested self-care, guidance, and techniques will raise the quality of nursing care and patient satisfaction. --Carole Ann Drick, PhD, RN, AHN-BC. President, American Holistic Nurses Association

After reviewing this book, I strongly suggest that every nurse across the globe purchase a copy, and that every school of nursing make this book part of their required reading. My reasons are two fold: not only does this book help nurses provide cutting-edge, patient-centred care, but it also provides strategies for self-care and personal enrichment at the same time. Very few books offer such rich and meaningful rewards! June Kaminsky, RN, MSN, PhD, Editor in Chief, Canadian Journal of Nursing Informatics
