Learn seven clinical approaches to working with the God image in psychotherapy Each person has two ideas of God—the God concept and the God image. The God concept is intellectual in nature, while the God image is the subjective emotional experience of God that is shaped by a person’s family history. Those who struggle with mental health issues often have a God image that is distant, critical, and judgmental because they had parents who behaved that way. God Image Handbook for Spiritual Counseling and Psychotherapy: Research, Theory, and Practice provides therapists with the tools to effectively treat clients who harbor God image issues. This unique manual builds upon strong philosophical and research foundations to offer seven practical clinical approaches to working with the God image in psychotherapy. Leading clinicians and researchers from various disciplines offer expert insight and analysis to provide therapists with in-depth understanding of the God image. God Image Handbook for Spiritual Counseling and Psychotherapy: Research, Theory, and Practice comprehensively discusses the psychodynamic foundation and research that contribute to the understanding of the God image, and then presents seven different theoretical and technical approaches to help those who have personal and religious problems. Case examples illustrate how the God image changes through the therapy process. The guidebook also explores future developments and the implications of race, culture, gender orientation, and economic conditions that impact the God image. Each approach and theory in God Image Handbook for Spiritual Counseling and Psychotherapy: Research, Theory, and Practice examine: background and philosophical assumptions God image development God image difficulties God image change strengths and weaknesses Case examples discuss: client history presenting problem case conceptualization treatment plan interventions duration of treatment termination therapeutic outcomes God Image Handbook for Spiritual Counseling and Psychotherapy: Research, Theory, and Practice is an interdisciplinary guide that provides a holistic understanding of psychological issues and the God image, and is a valuable practical addition to the libraries of psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, addiction professionals, clergy, spiritual directors, and pastoral counselors.

Spirituality, in this book, is considered both as a force for personal growth and as a therapeutic strategy to be applied for counseling people with severe illnesses or existential problems. Usually, spiritual counseling aims to foster the client's insight in his or her own soul and emotional resources. By moving towards self-discovery, aiming to deeper connectedness with others, and by appreciating the healing effect of being part of the whole, a person can get help to cope with threats and anxiety. However, also counselors, helpers, doctors, and nurses, through a higher understanding of the ethical and spiritual implications of their own role, can add an extra value and efficacy to their daily practice. Basically, spiritual counseling can attain a healing effect whereas other therapeutic attempts have been unsuccessful. This little book stands as a theoretical and practical guide to support all those people, professionals, helpers, counselors, that put all their efforts to improve the well-being of people living with serious illnesses, adjusting to preoccupying medical diagnoses, facing stressful life events, or coping with intractable crises. At the same time, this book can also be used as a self-help guide to understand the own spiritual resources and to discover the routes to healing the self.

Innovative and reflective, the first edition of Counseling and Spirituality strives to integrate the spiritual and clinical perspectives of counselors in order to successfully support clients' religious or spiritual journeys through utilizing appropriate knowledge and interventions.

Throughout the 15 chapters of the text, author Joshua Gold helps current and future counselors alike to contemplate how they see religion and spirituality in their own lives and to appraise how their own spirituality sways who they are as clinicians and what they do in the provision of mental health services for their clients.

The goal of this book is to help counselors move from a respectful but hesitant neutrality to a skilled, and action-oriented sensitivity toward their clients' spirituality. The primary audience is professional counselors and psychotherapists, social workers, counselor and therapist educators, and counselors-in-training in college programs. The book presents and discusses recent theory and research on spirituality and religion with regard to counseling and psychotherapy. It builds on the premise that spirituality and religion deserve counselors' sensitive regard, informed understanding, and, as ethically and therapeutically appropriate, skillful integration into effective counseling treatment. The first two chapters present information, concepts, and background knowledge that undergird counseling approaches, skills, and techniques. Chapter Three focuses on the relationship dimension of counseling and discusses principles and practices for relating the spiritual/religious dimension of the counseling relationship. Chapter Four looks at systematic approaches for evaluating the appropriateness of including spiritual and religious issues in counseling, and Chapter Five addresses a variety of treatment approaches and techniques for working with clients' spiritual and religious concerns.

The true spiritual way is based on the Bible. Rather than using theories of men, the spiritual counselor relies on the truths of God. Through such scriptural means as love, listening, acceptance, mercy, teaching, and encouragement, the spiritual counselor guides an individual in applying biblical principles to his life in order to develop more Christlike thought and behavior patterns. We are not opposed to, nor are we criticizing, the entire field of psychology, but rather the practice of psychotherapy based on ideologies which contradict Scripture. - Preface.

Generally speaking, the majority of the pastors today became like firefighters, trained to extinguish the fires of people's critical situations. Several pastors do not pastor people, but they pastor the crisis of the members of their congregations. The foundations of their member's beliefs are not confronted. This situation isn't only exhaustive, but also doesn't build up the solid solutions that bring the growth toward maturity. The effort of the pastors became superficial, and the cycle of the crisis is never broken. The church becomes more and more superficial and flavorless. Attending the calling of several leaders, pastors, missionaries, and intercessors who desire an intelligent and efficient pastoral training, the present book is to educate the body of Christ with the principles and biblical values, investing in the church's well-being and mainly in its growth in quality, rescuing the values of the priesthood and the pastoral work in depth. It also is designed to fulfill the emerging need of the present generation, making it's fruit to be permanent and their lives stable. I hope this material will inspire you and provide the tools to invest in what is most valuable--the human soul. Have a nice reading!
