Overview

Counseling practice which excludes spirituality and religion also excludes a major portion of a client's life and thought. However, many counselors are uncomfortable with the spirituality and religion of others, often because they are uncomfortable with their own. Editors Cashwell (counseling and educational development, U. of North Carolina at Greensboro), Young (counseling, educational psychology, and special education, Mississippi State U.) and contributors address spiritual competencies for counselors from the Association for Spiritual, Ethical and Religious Values in Counseling, including competencies in defining spirituality and religion, assessment of client and counselor in terms of culture and the life span, applying beliefs toward clients' treatment goals, and setting limits. Each essay includes references. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
