Abstract:

"In a multicultural country such as Australia, it is extraordinary that varied religious and spiritual beliefs are not considered in the relationship between the professional and the client. Pretending that they don't exist, or are irrelevant, is to ignore an important dimension of human existence and interaction." "Little has been written on this problem in an Australian cultural context. Recognizing Spirituality presents opinions of social work educators and practitioners, and statistics about Australian religious beliefs. It also discusses the stages of faith development. The persistance and strength of spiritual and religious beliefs is clear from all sources. Rae Lindsay challenges the status quo, arguing that spirituality and religion should be included in contemporary professional discourses."--Jacket.
