  This book provides a basic foundation that readers can use to draw practical and personal conclusions regarding the interface of counseling and spirituality. Readers will have a unique opportunity for both didactic and experiential investigation of spiritual and religious beliefs in relation to the counseling process. The authors provide important information on issues and concepts regarding spirituality, as well as examples of specific interventions related to the topics. The authors have made a conscious attempt to provide readers with information not addressed in other counseling and spirituality texts. The text is divided into three domains, the philosophical, the practical, and the personal. It is the authors’ premise that a holistic model of counseling and spirituality that integrates the scholarly and philosophical with the practical and personal must be used. This book provides a rich introduction to the topics, drawing on various disciplines, and presents the information in a user-friendly manner.
  “A wide range of practice-based topics are addressed in this fact-packed reference book for mental health professionals. Divided into nine major sections, it covers both practical and ethical concerns. The first section focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of common mental illnesses through the life cycle and includes issues relating to specific groups, crisis interventions, and practice management concerns. This is followed by discussions of legal/ethical issues and how mental health workers can cope with the formidable demands and stresses (e.g., compassion fatigue and burnout) of their occupations. The chapters are succinct, typically including statistics, current research, statements of the "best practice," and notable bibliographies. The editors, both professors of counseling at Cleveland State University, have done an admirable job of assembling into a coherent whole contributions from more than 70 experts from a variety of fields. The result is a wealth of useful information handily packaged for the working professional. The practical, direct, and authoritative tone of the book makes it suitable for a diverse audience needing a bridge between the divergent worlds of practice and multidisciplinary research in the field. Recommended for specialized collections serving mental healthcare providers.”
