"This casebook emphasizes the 'how to' in integrating spirituality in work with clients. Robert, Kelly, and their contributors have done an excellent job of addressing diversity issues with a variety of client populations across counseling specialties. This is a highly accessible and practical contribution to the counseling literature that I strongly recommend to all counseling professionals."

"The literature on spirituality and counseling is enhanced significantly by this book, which will be welcomed by the educator and practitioner alike. Not only is this text a terrific addition to any course on spirituality in counseling, practicum, or internship, if spirituality is akin to finding meaning in life, it is relevant to any presenting issue in counseling."
-Janine M. Bernard, PhD
This compelling casebook integrates critical incidents, spirituality, and counseling with diverse populations dealing with issues across the life development continuum. It offers counselor educators, students, and clinicians a highly useful educational tool for more effective teaching and practice that will foster lively discussion, case conceptualization, and intervention skills.
Using an applied format, the book is organized in seven sections: life span issues, spirituality and wellness, specific disorders, substance abuse, career, diverse populations, and spiritual interventions. More than 50 contributors-a veritable who's who of counselors with expertise in their topical areas-have been selected either to present specific incidents or to react to them. After each case is described, an expert practitioner answers the questions posed and provides additional insight and alternative strategies. The editors then offer their reflections, providing a concise summary of counseling outcomes.
