Spirituality and religion are fundamental to all human, yet in the helping professions, whose shared objective is to promote human well being, questions of spirituality often been avoided. Now we are increasingly realising that scientific materialism and individuality have failed to meet enduring human needs for meaning and connection.

Evidence mounts for the importance of spirituality for prevention and intervention in times of crisis, distress and illness. Many professionals find themselves ill-prepared to respond to the spiritual needs of their clients, and to negotiate encounters with people from unfamiliar faith tradition. Dr Fran Gale in this lecture highlights how it is possible for professionals to think critcally, and be open to spiritualty at the same time.
