Editorial Reviews

"In Therapy, Culture and Spirituality Nolan and Westbring together writings exploring the interconnectivity of culture, religion,spirituality and 'race' in the context of therapeutic practice and research.The book is a welcome addition to the increasing scholarly interest ininterrogating artificial dichotomies such as 'nature'/'culture' and 'objective'science and medicine/'subjective' counselling and therapy in understanding andworking with human distress." (Dr. Jayasree Kalathil, The Journal of CriticalPsychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy, Vol. 15, December, 2015)
