From the Publisher
"This edited volume provides a treasury of theoretically and clinically useful information about many of the world's religions. It provides valuable insights into the implications of various theologies and religious cultures for epistemology, personality theory, psychological health and illness, and theories of therapeutic change. These treasures of knowledge from the world's great religions could help inform and enrich psychological theory, research, and practice. The book should especially prove valuable for clinicians by helping them better understand and work more effectively with their clients, especially those who are religiously affiliated or spiritually-oriented." P. Scott Richards, Ph.D. Past-President, Division 36 (Psychology of Religion) of the American Psychological Association Author of "A Spiritual Strategy for Counseling and Psychotherapy" "Drs E.Thomas Dowd and Steven Lars Nielsen have done a remarkably comprehensive job of stating the wide diversity of religious expression. Psychotherapists will benefit from reading their book".
