Summary This book provides practitioners with the information they need to increase their competency in working sensitively with members of each of the major faith communities in North America. This volume examines over 2 dozen religious denominations and faith traditions in the context of clinical practice. Chapter authors describe the unique history, beliefs, rituals, and practices of the religion as well as commonly held views on social and moral issues such as divorce, homosexuality, birth control, abortion, suicide, and euthanasia. Worldviews, including conceptions of a deity, life after death, and the purpose of life, are also discussed. /// Within the context of the particular faith, chapter authors describe the therapeutic process, including building relationships with clients from that tradition, assessment and diagnosis, common clinical issues, and interventions most congruent with the faith. Additional resources that help psychotherapists to deepen their understanding of a particular faith are also recommended. This book helps all practitioners to more fully honor and make use of the unique religious beliefs and spiritual resources of their clients.
