9780230554061: Exploring Therapy, Spirituality and Healing

What place does spiritual need and healing have in the counselling room? Denying the spiritual dimension of personal distress can be potentially hurtful to clients, but the issue of spirituality is also fraught with professional and ethical issues for therapists. This book draws on original research to move the debate about spiritual need forwards in relation to therapeutic practice, supervision, and training.

An international team of contributors offer a diverse range of perspectives to critically explore a wide spectrum of spiritual issues, including prayer, pastoral care and traditional healing. Edited by a leading figure in the field, this book:

· Illuminates experiences of both clients and practitioners through detailed case vignettes
· Draws on cutting-edge research in this growing field
· Invites readers to address their own therapeutic practice with hands-on discussion points

This measured and thoughtful approach provides a fascinating insight to an often complex and controversial topic. As such, the book is essential reading for trainees and practitioners of counselling and psychotherapy.

About the Author:

WILLIAM WEST Reader in Counselling Studies and Director of Counselling Courses at the University of Manchester, UK. He is a Fellow of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and has written extensively on therapy and spirituality, qualitative research, supervision, humanistic therapy and culture.

Review:

The book is well structured, with much discussion of ethics, implications for practice, supervision and training. A plethora of examples and case studies make it accessible and engaging...It should be of interest to all therapists who are interested in the spiritual dimension of their work and willing to look beyond the confines of their own framework.' - Dr Els van Ooijen, Therapy Today

'This book has left me with an excitement about what we are engaging with when we enter into a therapeutic relationship, while acknowledging with West that we need to take great care, as 'therapeutic practice around spirituality and healing remains controversial''. Victoria Sherratt, Thresholds
