Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy: A Guide for Caregivers
Within the broad field of psychotherapy, there has not been an in-depth examination of the interface between psychotherapeutic practice and established religious tradition until now. In Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy, David Steere identifies the spiritual roots in traditional religion - and presents a unique look at this heretofore neglected relationship.
This book was written in response to the need observed by Dr. Steere for caregivers to accommodate a spiritual dimension in their work. Psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, pastoral counselors, nurses - and all who deal with the responsibility of treating mental disorders and helping people change - will find Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy invaluable.
In addition to the professionals who will find Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy an important resource and reference, the book will also serve as a key graduate-level textbook for students of professional issues and ethics, as well as psychotherapy and spirituality.
