Overview

There has long been an underlying sense of inadequacy felt among counselors and mental health professionals in dealing with the many varied issues surrounding spirituality and/or religion that clients may bring to counseling. Hesitancies on the part of the therapist to deal with these issues in counseling may be due in part to fears of imposing one's own values and beliefs on the client or fear of violating ethical principals. Religious and Spiritual Issues in Counseling is a comprehensive resource for counselors, psychotherapists and psychologists seeking to understand and incorporate the spiritual dimension of a client's person, and to use this understanding in developing successful intervention strategies with clients. Including case studies and exercises for self-exploration, this book covers specific groups, such as the elderly, the homeless as well as multicultural populations. Human development concerns are integrated into the book and address the changing role that spirituality plays throughout the lifespan.
