1. Purify, Betty A. Survey: Exploring Experiences of Christian Clients Integrating Faith In Psychotherapy.

Degree: Psy. D., Antioch Santa Barbara: Clinical Psychology, 2018, Antioch University

Among some cultures, the Scriptures and spirituality play a major role in help-focusing interactions, offering perspective and support, enhancing coping strategies, and providing guidance to those who adhere to the teachings of the Bible when dealing with problems and getting through life’s challenges. In the U.S. today, Christian therapists working with Christian clients often draw on the Scriptures and spirituality during psychotherapy. However, researchers suggested this practice has not been well-explored in the academic psychological literature, and training in spirituality for therapists may vary, along with their levels of competence, because of work that remains to be done translating spiritual competencies into a practical understanding – how to work with clients’ spirituality. Through a survey, this study sought to explore retrospectively any influence and/or impact the Scriptures and spirituality may have had when implemented by Christian therapists during psychotherapy sessions. Among 112 individuals who responded to an online survey, 82 met full criteria for inclusion in the study. Participants reported having found support through the use of Scriptures in therapy. The themes developed from responses were placed in categories for family, life issues, encouragement, and feelings/emotions. Overall, results suggested the Scripture use was most helpful with life struggles.

2. Francois, Charlotte. Andlighetens utrymme i det psykoterapeutiska samtalet.

Degree: St Lukas Educational Institute, 2012, Ersta Sköndal University College

De religiösa och existentiella perspektiven är ofta förbisedda inom psykoterapin men frågorna om liv och död, mening och tro är oundvikliga och kan inte reduceras till bakomliggande intrapsykiska processer. En holistisk syn på människan och att ge plats för andliga och existentiella behov borde vara en självklarhet i det psykoterapeutiska samtalet. Syftet med denna kvalitativa och deskriptiva studie är att utforska hur beredskapen för andliga och religiösa frågor ser ut hos erfarna psykoterapeuter. Frågeställningarna fokuserar på psykoterapeuternas erfarenhet av andlighet, både utifrån utbildning, terapi och egna upplevelser och vilka konsekvenser detta får i mötet med konfidenten. I studien intervjuas 5 erfarna psykoterapeuter med intresse för andlighet och existentiella frågor. Resultaten visar att den egna erfarenheten och den egna upplevelsen har betydelse i valet av utbildning och terapi. Den sökande psykoterapeuten söker sig aktivt till litteratur och utbildningar där livsåskådningstemat finns med. Utbildning och egen terapi är till hjälp när det gäller att kunna närma sig och formulera sig kring andlighet och trosfrågor. En egen bearbetning av existentiella och andliga frågor ger närvaro och lyhördhet i samtalen och detta kan leda till att <em>tillit </em>uppstår i relationen. Att vara uppmärksam när en existentiell problematik formuleras framhölls av psykoterapeuterna men också vikten av att inte styra samtalet. Förmåga att urskilja den andlighet och religiositet som handlar om ofrihet anses som viktigt för samtliga psykoterapeuter. Slutsatserna blir att psykoterapeutens egen bearbetning är central. Psykoterapeuten bör veta var han/hon själv står i andliga och religiösa frågor. Psykoterapeutens kunskap, erfarenhet och upplevelse avspeglas i mötet med konfidenten. Lyhördhet, förutsättningslöshet, öppenhet, närvaro och äkthet är viktiga egenskaper hos psykoterapeuten. Livsåskådningsperspektivet är en viktig del i utbildningen till psykoterapeut.

3. Foster, Scott. An investigation into organisational commitment to spirituality in the workplace.

Degree: PhD, 2014, Liverpool John Moores University

This study examined the emerging debate on spirituality in the workplace. As spirituality gains impetus, organisations have proactively accommodated the needs of their multi-ethnic and multi-faith workforce and have started integrating spirituality into their policies. The study sought to gauge the employees and managers’ perceptions of the importance of spirituality in the workplace. Spirituality represents a complex phenomenon that embraces an awareness of others, coupled with a sense of fulfilment and values, which add meaning to life. Overall, a lack of clear policy and acknowledgment regarding spirituality within organisations is apparent. The extant literature suggests that spirituality as a research topic suffers from fragmentation, dearth, and confusion which sometimes makes it difficult to propose a comprehensive theory. The complexity and ambiguity of spirituality as a concept means it is often confused with religious rituals. Spirituality is not the same as religion, although religion can be the focus of an individual’s spirituality or the way in which an individual’s spirituality is recognised and expressed. Both spirituality and religion can operate independently from each other. As a result, many scholars have realised the need for a more unified interpretation of the term spirituality. Adopting a predominantly positivist stance, two organisations in England were surveyed. Using a purpose-designed questionnaire, a return of 628 was achieved, with a reliability of 0.87 (Cronbach Alpha). Analysis was undertaken as a data set using independent variables which related to biographical factors, including a person’s faith and their organisation. This was supported by qualitative data using semi-structured interviews with senior management in both organisations. Findings and analysis highlighted that employees did not feel comfortable discussing spirituality; nor did they feel it was appropriate to practise spirituality within the workplace. In their perceptions of spirituality policies, both organisations proffered initiatives that, in the absence of a coherent policy, employees struggled to accommodate employee spiritual needs. Overall, the findings revealed that the limited policies or procedures that were in place often left the employees ambivalent as to whether the organisation had any genuine interest in their spiritual well-being. Since employee spirituality is under-researched, this study investigated the nature of workplace spirituality to benefit academic research through expanding the knowledge in this area, to produce a model of spirituality. The study findings will led to new knowledge on spirituality that can assist in the formulation of suitable strategies to enhance employee spiritual well-being. This study is pertinent in the current economic recession, whereby employees of different ethnic backgrounds may feel vulnerable, with the possibility of spirituality manifesting itself in the workplace as a source of conflict. To address the issue of potential spiritual conflict, organisations will…
