Spiritualities in Contemporary Psychotherapy: Personal, Clinical and Sociopolitical Perspectives

Spiritualities in Contemporary Psychotherapy: Personal, Clinical and Sociopolitical Perspectives

I began to develop my ‘Anatomy of Spirituality’ in the late 1980s and have developed it in subsequent writings and in consultancy work with organisations (including Britain’s National Health Service), political leaders and activist groups in several countries. In 1993, in The Political Psyche, he introduced the idea of a ‘resacralisation of culture’. This involved four types of spirituality: social, democratic, craft, and profane. Each may be experienced as controversial, and all four will be explored at a personal level; in relation to clinical work; and in wider contexts. In this way, Andrew hopes to produce something useful on spirituality that doesn’t split the private from the professional, and without losing sight of the public sufferings contemporary Western culture is generating.
