9780826120342: Zen & Psychotherapy: Integrating Traditional and Nontraditional Approaches

Exploring the role of spirituality and religion in treatment, this book provides a sound clinical and academic rationale for exploring incorporating principles of Zen in traditional psychotherapy.

The authors, one a clinical educator and social scientist, the other a nurse psychotherapist and practicing Buddhist present a fascinating dialog on the "science" and the "art" sides of the art-science debate. Practical suggestions are included for achieving a balance between these two poles of the helping and healing process.

From the Publisher:

"The authors provide substance for the scholar and clinician alike. Mental health professionals, both seasoned and novice, will delight in the insightful blending of the lifetime of experience between the authors and the timeless practicality of Zen. A good reference for anyone dealing with the suffering of others." -Michael Jones, PhD, Director, Psychological Associates, Houston, TX

About the Author:

Chris Mruk, PhD, was trained in general psychology at Michigan State University in 1971 and in clinical psychology at Duquesne University in 1981. His clinical background includes working in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings, supervising a methadone program in Detroit, working in emergency psychiatric services, directing a counseling center at St. Francis College in Pennsylvania, doing some private practice, and serving as a consulting psychologist to Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, Ohio. He is licensed as a clinical psychologist in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Chris's academic experience includes some 20 years of teaching psychology and training mental health professionals. He is a professor of psychology at Bowling Green State University, Firelands College, Ohio, where he has won the college's Distinguished Teaching and Distinguished Scholar awards. His publications include a number of academically oriented articles, several chapters and, coauthored with Joan Hartzell, Zen and Psychotherapy: Integrating Tradition and Nontraditional Approaches (2003, paperback 2006, Springer Publishing Company). Chris and his Wife Marsha, whose career involves directing large-scale mental health programs, live in Sandusky, Ohio.



Joan Hartzell, RN, MA, graduated from the St. Joseph's School of Nursing in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1950. After working in medical hospital care positions for some eight years, she found herself so interested in mental health issues that she switched to psychiatric nursing. This work included providing mental health care on inpatient units, doing psychiatric consultations on medical units and at nursing home facilities, and then supervising mental health programs, such as the St. Lawrence Community Mental Health Center in Lansing, Michigan. This work included developing a 24-hour comprehensive psychiatric emergency service that was recognized as an exemplary program by the National Institute of Mental Health in 1974-75.

Shortly afterward, Joan realized that her approach to providing mental health care had much more in common with Zen than with the scientific empiricism of modern psychiatry. After beginning her study of the teachings of the Buddha in the early 1980s, she explored other nontraditional approaches, including Native American healing. Joan then completed a Master's degree in therapeutic psychology from Norwich University, Vermont College, in Montpelier in 1994. Throughout this time she has continued to study Zen, while living it in her work at community mental health centers where she helps people who suffer from serious illness, and in her private practice.
