Spirituality and religion influence the way many clients interpret their life experiences. Recognizing this reality, the editors of Spiritually Oriented Interventions for Counseling and Psychotherapy offer mental health professionals an in-depth look at how to integrate both Western and Eastern spiritually oriented interventions into clinical practice.

This book will be an invaluable tool for mental health professionals working with spiritually and religiously diverse clients.
