|About the Book|
Counseling is experiencing a revival of spirituality as more and more people discover a desire to believe in something bigger than they are. As more people express a desire for spiritually sensitive counselors, many counselors discover a gap in their knowledge and practical applications, for they have not adequately explored their own spirituality or faith. This book is designed to address that gap. The author, a retired counselor educator, first shares a bit of his own personal journey, then traces a bit of the history of the movement in the counseling profession, and finally discusses a number of topics relevant to the practice of spiritually sensitive counseling. He makes practical suggestions that a counselor can put into use tomorrow, grounding everything in a solid integration of theology and psychology. He desires to be honest and open and, above all, practical! The book is interspersed with personal experiences and stories that give life to the content.
