Survival Packet: 2nd Edition
The Survival Packet was developed from multiple models of psychotherapy to provide a concise yet coherent treatment guide for individual, group, and family counseling. While the Survival Packet was specifically designed with residential populations in mind, this “counseling curriculum” can be implemented in a variety of clinical settings, both in-patient and out-patient. It is the personal hope of the author that this resource will prove invaluable in working with both families and youth struggling on the journey of life.
Religious & Spiritual Coping
Whether you are a psychologist, psychiatrist, physician, nurse, counselor, therapist, pastor, chaplain, or social worker – or anyone else that aspires to work with the human condition – then you need to know the neglected connection between religion, spirituality, and coping. Current professional standards require “best practice” and “evidence-based” interventions while ethical codes mandate “cultural competence” and attention to “diversity.” None of these demands for professionalism is met when we ignore – whether willingly or otherwise – the coping strategies of our religious and spiritual clients. This scholarly work addresses these needs with three impressive feats: First, this book reviews decades of research on religious and spiritual coping. Second, this book re-examines religious / spiritual interventions with scientific rigor. And third, this book draws conclusions and makes concrete recommendations based on these findings. In short, this work is a “must have” for your professional library!
