Issues of spirituality are gaining increasing prominence within the therapeutic professions. Written by a leading figure in this emerging domain, this book provides a unique and creative focus for therapists wishing to consider how spirituality may inform or shape their own practice. William West innovatively draws together narratives from personal experience (both his own and that of other leading figures in the world of therapy), research and practice to address such vital questions as "how can the therapeutic encounter be a safe place for spirituality to be considered" and "how can the spiritual life of the therapist be engaged in their work?" Students and practitioners will find this book both thought-provoking and inspiring, but ultimately highly practical and as such an essential practice companion.
