Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Spirituality and religion can be very important and influential aspects of an individual's life, however the counseling process seems to lack a framework that addresses these two important areas. Although the literature continues to grow, this topic seems to lack a sense of congruence between therapeutic approaches and integrating spirituality and religion into this approach.
This paper briefly examines some of the existing literature on this integration and also incorporates some personal view points. It is hoped that the reader will, at the very least, begin to get a sense of importance in regards to his/her own spirituality and religion and also get a sense of the importance it can play in the lives of those who seek counseling. Ultimately, this awareness will further motivate current and future counselors to further investigate and develop ways to integrate spirituality and religion into his/her own style of the counseling process.
