“Caregiving is more than a career; it is a process of building a relationship,” Dr. Murphy V. S. Anderson said about his latest book, “The Fundamental Concepts of Caregiving” to be launched on Saturday, June 29, 2024, along with “Shaped by Our Thoughts: Let Our People Think” at the Messiah Lutheran Church, 1200 S Waggoner Road, Reynoldsburg, Ohio from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Dr. Murphy V. S. Anderson who has been a caregiver for more than 25 years said, “The Fundamental Concepts of Caregiving is uniquely written to address the current and future concerns about caregiving in America and what is needed to enhance the care recipient and caregiver relationship.”

“It provides research-based information on caregiving in America and other countries. This book also recommends practical, logical, and system-thinking approaches to caregiving that are based on the author’s more than 25 years of experience, knowledge, training, and passion as a caregiver.”

The book discusses why caregiving is a unique career and an opportunity to demonstrate one’s humanity to others. It also discusses why caregiving is more than a career but a process of building a relationship by considering the following: barriers to caregiving; the Push and Pull Approach; the roles of care recipient and caregiver; the roles of stakeholders and provider agencies; diversity; interconnected support teams; staff training; polarization; the political and social determinants of health; abuse; and system thinking.

In his second latest book “Shaped by Our Thoughts: Let Our People Think’ also slated for launch on same day, Dr. Anderson said “Shaped by Our Thoughts: Let Our People Think is a poetic discussion of both past and current social and historical events that we have experienced as a people and society.”

“This book’s main goal is to draw readers’ attention to some of the day-to-day social injustices, societal issues, and human struggles people face, as well as show readers how to respond to them.”

Dr. Murphy V. S. Anderson hopes readers will become better thinkers and citizens after reading this book, creating a friendly society where the life and dignity of each person is honored and respected.
