Overview

This book offers new possibilities for mental health professionals who are looking for ways to adapt traditional therapy and counseling techniques to address the spiritual and psychological issues their clients face. The author utilizes an Adlerian Individual Psychology perspective, which rejects biological determinism and focuses on the influence of powerful environmental factors on personality.

This book provides specific methods and guidelines for applying Individual Psychology concepts to clients of each of the world's major religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. The author offers a wealth of insight into the customs, theories, and philosophies of each religion. With this knowledge, mental health professionals can use Individual Psychology methods and techniques to better understand and assist clients.
