In this chapter I will introduce the concepts of ‘Availability and Vulnerability’ (A&V) and offer a rationale for adapting these concepts and using them as a framework for operationalising spirituality in practice. I will reflect on the concepts of A&V, describe how they have come to have personal significance for me, provide findings from a recent research study, and suggest how they are helpful for integrating spirituality in nursing, social and psychological care.
