This breakthrough book is filled with innovative approaches to psychotherapy and counseling. Designed to help people integrate what they believe and how they live, it analyzes the meaning and value of a transcendence crisis and shows how to see in the events that appear to be disintegrating an opportunity to come to new levels of integration and transcendent formation. General readers will find this volume beneficial, and those in the fields of spiritual direction and denominational counseling will find it especially useful.
