Many of us struggle periodically with feelings of disconnection and meaninglessness in our lives. A life journey with sustainable meaning must include a connection with the essence of who we are, our Real Self. Our Real Self contains our inner wisdom and discernment as well as impulses for growth and creativity. This self-help book presents an integration of psychological concepts and spiritual themes in inclusive and engaging ways that invite readers to embrace a process of discovery and health.
Although many clients want spiritual and philosophical issues to be addressed in therapy, many mental health professionals report that they are ill-equipped to meet clients' needs in this area. Providing a model that is approachable from a variety of theoretical orientations, this book supports therapists in becoming open to the unique ways that clients define, experience, and access life-affirming spiritual beliefs and practices. It also provides practical steps to integrating spirituality into psychotherapeutic process.
