This is an exploration of the different ways in which the spiritual can be used in therapy. The contributor write from a range of perspectives including Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and shamanic and explain how their own spiritual and creative influences interact, finding expression in the use of art as a healing agent with specific populations, such as bereaved children, emotionally disturbed adolescents and the homeless. The relationships between spirituality and visual art, art therapy and transpersonal pyschology are also examined.
