Exploring the role of spirituality and religion in treatment, this book provides a sound clinical and academic rationale for exploring incorporating principles of Zen in traditional psychotherapy.
The authors, one a clinical educator and social scientist, the other a nurse psychotherapist and practicing Buddhist present a fascinating dialog on the science and the art sides of the art-science debate. Practical suggestions are included for achieving a balance between these two poles of the helping and healing process.
