Overview

Postmaterial spiritual psychology posits that consciousness can contribute to the unfolding of material events and that the human brain can detect broad, non-material communications. In this regard, this emerging field of postmaterial psychology marks a stark departure from psychology's traditional assumptions about materialism, making this text particularly attractive to the current generation of students in psychology and related health and wellness disciplines.

The Oxford Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality codifies the leading empirical evidence in the support and application of postmaterial psychological science. Sections in this volume include:

- personality and social psychology factors and implications
- spiritual development and culture
- spiritual dialogue, prayer, and intention in Western mental health
- Eastern traditions and psychology
- physical health and spirituality
- positive psychology
- scientific advances and applications related to spiritual psychology

With chapters from leading scholars in psychology, medicine, physics, and biology, The Oxford Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality is an interdisciplinary reference for a rapidly emerging approach to contemporary science. This overarching work provides both a foundation and a roadmap for what is truly a new ideological age.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Scholars interested in this field could use the book as a valuable resource for information on a wide variety of topics, sometimes even crossing the borders into other disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality could be a substantial reference for scholars interested in the field, although not every researcher will agree on the ontological assumptions brought to the fore. [F]or those who have access, this volume could be a valuable resource." J. Dezutter, Journal of Empirical Theology
