  • Description
  • Details

The Psychologies of Religion examines the thinking, personality, and development processes as well as specific clinical concerns of clients who are members of particular religious groups.

Religious upbringing influences people in ways that are difficult or impossible to describe; this book provides a "window on their world. Each contributing author brings dual expertise to their chapters, expertise about a particular religion and psychological sophistication; a look from the inside out. In addition, the book covers possible future religious development as spiritualism beings to replace institutional religion and as religious choice replaces religious constraint.

All therapists who want to understand how religious people really think will find this book helpful.
