Spiritually Oriented Counseling offers readers a practical approach which utilizes thematically-based, personally-accessible notions of spirituality and an integration of various traditional and contemporary counseling theories. Counselors shouldn’t have to go outside the counseling field to find theories which can be integrated with spirituality. Spiritually Oriented Counseling provides a model which integrates existing counseling theories, revolving around the concept of the Real Self, with spiritual themes. The book also addresses the counselor’s own history and experiences with spirituality. By encouraging readers to increase their personal awareness and spiritual differentiation, clinical effectiveness with spiritual issues is enhanced and ethical transgressions related to imposing their beliefs or personalizing client issues can be avoided. Spiritually Oriented Counseling begins with a introduction the integrative model Johnson has developed for addressing the therapist’s and client’s spirituality. The book then looks at psychological theories and spiritual themes
