Beschreibung
Selected papers from the international conference 2011, Valea lui Liman, Romania

Despite the widely recognised secularisation of professions, an increasing number of practitioners and academics are noting the positive role which spirituality (when adequately integrated) can play in the counselling process. Starting from such observations, the present volume sets out to explore the role of spirituality (Christian spirituality in particular) in the counselling which practitioners in the helping professions offer to their service users. The volume is organized in five main parts, focusing, in turn, on the relationship between spiritual and professional paradigms in the practice of counselling (Part One), specific methods and resources in the counselling process (Part Two), church-related counselling (Part Three), child and family welfare (Part Four), elderly care and end-of-life issues (Part Five).
