Journal of Religion in Disability & Rehabilitation
Journal of Religion in Disability & Rehabilitation currently does not have a website. A spiritually motivating journal to assist professionals working with people with disabilities and their families! The Journal of Religion, Disability & Health provides an interfaith, interdisciplinary forum that supports people with disabilities and their families through religious, spiritual, clinical, educational, and scientific perspectives. There is a growing awareness of the importance of spirituality and religion in health and human services. This journal addresses the critical ethical, moral, and spiritual issues raised by people with disabilities in health and rehabilitation services. This eye-opening reference allows people interested in the intersections of religion, disability, and health and human services to come together, meet, and learn.
This journal focuses on research, policies, and practices that unite re igious personnel with health care professionals and researchers to develop more holistic supports and inclusive communities for people with disabilities. The Journal of Religion, Disability & Health also supplies an equal place “at the table” for the voices of people with disabilities and their families as they encounter and address services and supports in the world of faith and health. This journal strives to explore the richness of religious and spiritual life in both persons dealing with issues of disability and health as well as those who love and support them. Articles include research, clinical and pastoral reflections, theory and theology, and other media for spirituality such as poetry, sermons, prayers, and stories.

The Journal of Whiplash and Related Disorders
Until now, there has been a distinct absence in the biomedical literature of a journal devoted to the publication of high quality articles in the field of whiplash research. Researchers, educators, students, and clinicians have had to go to many different journals in various disciplines to find papers relating to whiplash injuries and their sequelae, which has made it difficult to stay current with new developments in the field. In answer to this need, Haworth Medical Press is proud to present the first and only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing the scientific study of the nature, prevalence, and treatment of whiplash and related disorders. The Journal of Whiplash & Related Disorders will focus on the newest treatment options for this widely misunderstood and frequently mistreated condition and will deliver up-to-date information on the subject, gathered from available literature and respected authorities in the field. The Journal of Whiplash & Related Disorders is multidisciplinary, examining the problem of whiplash injuries from all relevant perspectives, including: Clinical, Biomechanical, Engineering, Societal, Traffic safety. Our Editorial Board consists of some of the best known names in whiplash research from North America, Europe, and Asia. The Journal of Whiplash & Related Disorders will also help you keep informed of new developments in the field by serving as a clearinghouse for abstracts of recent worthwhile publications appearing in other journals. Our goal is to make the Journal the most valuable single resource available for researchers, practitioners and others who deal with this commonly encountered yet poorly understood form of traumatic injury. http://www.whiplashjournal.com/
