About-

Reflections of Spirituality in Pastoral Psychotherapy supports the pastoral and counseling practitioner's assurance that spirituality is imbedded within the human experience and may be presumed to be a positive resource for remediation and reconciliation. The work is at once autobiographical and theological. In many ways the author's approach echoes the pilgrim's path of the faithful disciple. A clear distinction is provided by which one may identify the spiritually sensitive counselor. Leon Sims sketches a treatment program, but emphasizes how one may explore theoretical materials germane to a faith community to reframe approaches to clients' problems and personal pain. Although the approach is based on Christian principles, there will suggestive resources for divergent orientations. The model for theoretical reflection is a major strength of the book.
