Integrating Spirituality in Counseling:
A Manual for Using the Experiential Focusing Method, by Elfie Hinterkopf, Ph.D.
Dr. Hinterkopf presents a process definition of spirituality. The distinction between process and content brings clarity to the subject of spirituality in counseling. By attending to the process, rather than particluar contents, the spiritual development of all clients, regardless of culture or spiritual tradition, can be included in a deeply respectful way. An example of using the Experiential Focusing Method to help a client experience her spirituality is given, and implications for practice are discussed.
