Editorial Reviews

Not a study of the psychology of religion, but an investigation into religion as a variable in treatment of mental disorders and in the clinical process. Issues are discussed with respect to the life of the individual and, secondarily, to the culture at large. Contributions are in sections on the conceptual, cultural, and historical context of religion and psychology; religion, mental health, and clinical practice; and psychotherapy with religiously committed people.
