Management of Chronic Nonbacterial Prostatitis and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome in the Adult Male Patient with Comorbid Conditions

Being and Doing: A Cultural Immersion Reflection
ABSTRACT: Doing, that is, working and achieving accomplishments, is a strong Western value. Alternatively, being is about focusing on relationships and the moment. In a weeklong service-learning experience that included manual labor, cultural immersion activities, relationship building, and daily prayer and reflection, an educator was able to help nursing students discover the importance of being, while offering service. Stories and sharing helped to achieve the goal of moving students to a deeper understanding of the Bible's call to solidarity and justice. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Three nurses relay supernatural events where God worked in and through their nursing practice, reinforcing the understanding of what author Henry Blackaby calls experiencing God. Christian nurses are called to enter deeply into relationship with God. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Biblical Counseling: An Alternative for Treating Depressive Symptoms
ABSTRACT: Despite use of current standards of care—antidepressant medications and psychotherapy—to treat depressive symptoms, results experienced by patients and reported in the literature have been inconsistent. Religiously integrated cognitive behavioral therapy (RCBT) is an evidence-based alternative to cognitive behavioral therapy. A type of RCBT, biblical counseling is a viable option for patients experiencing depressive symptoms. Nurses need an awareness of biblical counseling as a therapeutic option for patients who are open to spiritually based care for depression. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)
