Abstract

A trust-based nurse-patient relationship and open communication can help nurses alleviate clients' intrapersonal and interpersonal distress. However, the client's silence about unspoken needs can present an obstacle to successful holistic care. This article describes how pictures, both mental and printed, can be used by nurses to open pathways of healing communication and holistic nursing care.
