"The book is authoritative, well-reasoned, and abounds in wisdom.
It accurately portrays the deepest meanings of both spiritual
presence and psychotherapy and shows interactions. This is a
pioneering volume, the first of its kind. It should be the standard
text for years to come". -- Wayne E. Oates, Ph.D., Professor of
Psychiatry Emeritus, University of Louisiana School of Medicine In
Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy, David Steere recognizes the
incorporation of this tradition -- referring to it as
"spirituality" -- and presents a unique look at this heretofore
neglected interface. This book is written in response to the need
observed by Dr. Steere, for caregivers who want to accommodate a
spiritual dimension in their work. For this reason,
psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers,
pastoral counselors, nurses -- all dealing with the responsibility
of treating mental disorders and helping people change -- will find
Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy invaluable. The first part of
the text discusses the interfaces of psychotherapy and
spirituality. Dr. Steere analyzes the deconstruction of mainstream
religion and the rise of psychotherapy against a backdrop of what
he calls "spiritual homelessness". In the second part, seven models
for spiritual presence in psychotherapy are described. These are:
supernatural, expansive, empathic, developmental, sacred, crisis,
and systemic. Then, in the final portion of the book, the focus
moves to an integration of responsiveness to spiritual presence in
effective and enduring caregiving. In addition to the professionals
who will find Spiritual Presence in Psychotherapy an important
resource and reference, the bookwill also serve as a key textbook
for graduate-level students of professional issues and ethics, as
well as psychotherapy and spirituality.
