Equally important, though, is the potential "The Power of Hope" has for those health care professionals who look at hope only as it relates to therapy and miss the opportunity to use hope as a clinical tool and as an educational strategy for their patients. In addition, health care providers from many disciplines will find this book helps them maintain professional hope when practicing in challenging and high loss work settings. it should be a "must read" in clinical training programs.
