The Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling (ASERVIC) and the American Counseling Association (ACA) has endorsed core competencies to address spiritual and religious issues in counseling.

The methods this book explore foster healing, growth, and well-being; a common goal of counseling and spirituality. For mental health professionals, the therapeutic process centers on the individual client and warrants careful attention to address the clients beliefs and frame of reference to create interventions that should be tailored to each clients issues and need.
The goal of this book is to help cultivate proficiency for all practitioners to clarify and simplify integration of the spiritual competencies. It is anticipated that this book will promote effective and creative strategies for incorporating spirituality and religion into clinical practice and care.
