"Languages of Care in Narrative Medicine" Book Publishing

“This is a trail-blazing book, bringing health care and “human understanding” closer than ever before. A key feature of the book is the use of shared human concepts (the “Natural Semantic Metalanguage”) which can help humanise the relations between sick people and the caring professions by offering a new “language of care”: Basic Human. It’s a language that facilitates empathy and deep human connection. This is the first book to take this perspective on illness and care. Reaching other people through shared concepts is an art which can help us at many times, but perhaps especially when we are ill, or care for the ill. I strongly recommend this book.”
