Spirited Practices: Spirituality and the Helping Professions
Nata Edited by Fran Gale
Publisher: Allen & Unwin Academic
This title provides a groundbreaking, multidisciplinary overview of the role of spirituality in the helping professions. It covers dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted media and organisations.Literature about the helping professions has traditionally focused on the roles of positivity and rationality rather than spiritual concerns. But in recent years there has been a revival of interest in the importance of religion and spirituality, its role in the prevention and intervention of crisis situations, mental and physical illness, as well as its function in the community.“Spirited Practices” seeks to address this surge in interest by providing readers with a guide to integrating spirituality into varied helping professions, as well as examining the dilemmas they may face in balancing the tensions between client demands and accepted practices.This volume is destined to become a standard reference for anyone who works in and around the helping professions.
