Diagnostic Reasoning is a useful tool to organize significant amounts of information. To best evaluate this intel, all plausible explanations of that information needs to be pre-prepared to off-set one’s preconditioned mental map of the situation.

I have worked on a Spiritual Experience Inventory as an add-on to the classic Health History Interview which Registered Nurses perform. This pioneering assessment tool is based on wellness theory (Carolyn Chambers Clark,1986) and I adapted the Manual of Psychiatric Emergencies (Hyman, 1984). I considered Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis (Grof & Grof, 1989) which I will further address in later blogs.
