Wie können Unternehmen mit unerwarteten Situationen umgehen? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, untersuchen die Autoren sogenannte High Reliability Organizations (HROs) - Organisationen, die absolut zuverlässig arbeiten müssen, wie z. B. Fluglotsen oder Feuerwehrmannschaften. An ihren spezifischen Handlungsabläufen kann sich jede Organisation orientieren, um unerwartete Ereignisse und Entwicklungen besser zu verstehen und zu bewältigen. Wie die Methoden der HROs sich in der Unternehmenspraxis umsetzen lassen, zeigt der lösungsorientierte Managementansatz.

Ärzte, Pflegekräfte und Psychotherapeuten erheben in Europa bislang im Rahmen ihrer Diagnostik in aller Regel keine spirituelle Anamnese und gehen in der Behandlung nur selten auf die spirituellen Bedürfnisse ihrer Patienten ein. Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe betrachten Religiosität und Spiritualität entweder nicht als ihren Zuständigkeitsbereich oder sind unsicher im Umgang damit. Dieses Buch gibt Grundlagen zum Thema und bietet allen Berufsgruppen innerhalb des therapeutischen Teams konkrete Hilfestellungen zum Umgang mit den spirituellen Bedürfnissen ihrer Patienten. Auch problematische Aspekte werden beleuchtet. Gesundheitsrelevante Informationen zu verschiedenen Religionen und ein Muster-Curriculum runden das Werk ab.
