Although culture and beliefs can play a part in spirituality, every person has their own unique experience of spirituality - it can be a personal experience for anyone, with or without a religious belief. It's there for everyone. Spirituality also highlights how connected we are to other people and the world.

However, recent studies have identified another side of religion that may serve as a psychological and social resource for coping with stress.

Many articles have been written about the importance of recognising patients' spiritual and religious beliefs and trying to understand them so that they might be better engaged with services and that there might be a better therapeutic relationship. However, little has been written concerning agnostics or aetheists views of patients.

Factor your clients' religious beliefs into their therapy! A recent Gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of Americans surveyed said they would prefer to receive counseling from a therapist who is religious. The Power of Spirituality in Therapy: Integrating Spiritual and Religious Beliefs in Mental Health Practice addresses the apprehensions many clinicians have when it comes to discussing God with their clients. Authors Peter A. Kahle and John M. Robbins draw from their acclaimed workshops on the integration of spirituality and psychotherapy to teach therapists how they can help clients make positive life changes that are consistent with their values and spiritual and/or religious orientations. The Power of Spirituality in Therapy combines psychotherapy, spirituality, and humor to examine the “pink elephants” of academia-Godphobia and institutional a-spiritualism. The book explores the “learned avoidance” that has historically limited therapists in their ability—and willingness—to engage clients in “God-talk” and presents clinicians with methods they can use to incorporate spirituality into psychotherapy. Topics such as truth, belief, postmodernism, open-mindedness, and all-inclusiveness are examined through empirical findings, practical steps and cognitive processes, and clinical stories. The Power of Spirituality in Therapy includes: To Be (Ethical) or Not to Be? WHAT is the Question? To Believe or Not to Believe? That is NOT the Question! The Deification of Open-Mindedness Learning From Our Clients In God Do Therapists Trust? and much more! The Power of Spirituality in Therapy is an essential resource for therapists, counselors, mental health practitioners, pastoral counselors, and social work professionals who deal with clients who require therapy that reflects the importance of God in their lives. This guide will help those brave enough to explore how their own spiritual beliefs and/or biases can create problems when working with those clients.

I was hoping this book would give me more information on how to relate to clients of many different faiths and beliefs and how to manage incorporating religion as a bolster to therapeutic work. I did not feel this book met these goals. It was interesting to read the author's general comments on religion and their arguments for incorporating religion into mental health treatment.

Drs. Kahle and Robbins astutely identify one of counseling's quandaries: how can clients honestly be assisted if the profession is unwilling to discuss the whole person, which may include conversation about his or her spiritual worldview? While I don't think this book is a how-to-manual for integrating spirituality into sessions, which the authors acknowledged upfront, it does provide meaningful insight for those on the fence about the validity of such discussions.
Finally, I find the mix of supporting scientific studies, humor and an abundance of quotes useful and compelling.
