Psychiatry and religion/spirituality (R/S) share an interest in human flourishing, a concern with beliefs and values, and an appreciation for community. Yet historical tensions between science and religion continue to impede dialogue, leaving clinicians uncertain about how to approach ethical questions arising between them. When are religious practices such as scrupulosity disordered? What distinguishes healthy from unhealthy religion? How should a therapist approach a patient's existential, moral or spiritual distress? What should clinicians do with patients' R/S convictions about faith healing, same-sex relationships, or obligations to others? Discussions of psychiatric ethics have traditionally emphasized widely accepted principles, generally admired virtues, and cultural competence. Relatively little attention has been devoted to the ways that R/S inform the values of patients and their clinicians, shape preferred virtues, and interact with culture. Ethical Considerations at the Intersection of Psychiatry and Religion aims to give mental health professionals a conceptual framework for understanding the role of R/S in ethical decision-making and serve as practical guidance for approaching challenging cases. Part I addresses general considerations, including the basis of therapeutic values in a pluralistic context, the nature of theological and psychiatric ethics, spiritual issues arising in diagnosis and treatment, unhealthy and harmful uses of religion, and practical implications of personal spirituality. Part II examines how these considerations apply in specific contexts: inpatient and outpatient, consultation-liaison, child and adolescent, geriatric, disability, forensic, community, international, addiction and disaster and emergency psychiatry, as well as in the work of religious professionals, ethics committees, psychiatric education, and research. Thick descriptions of case examples analyzed using the framework of Jonson and Winslow show the clinical relevance of understanding the contributions of religion and spirituality to patient preferences, quality of life, decision making, and effective treatment.

The importance of addressing spiritual issues in psychiatry is becoming increasingly recognized. A large body of literature supports a link between religiosity and positive mental health outcomes, and leading authorities in psychiatric diagnosis and training have acknowledged these findings. This is reflected in the presence of the category "religious or spiritual problem" in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and in the inclusion of spirituality in patient assessment guidelines and residency training objectives. Despite this, spirituality is seldom addressed in mental health and many psychiatry residency programs offer little training on the topic. This book reviews the literature on spirituality and psychiatry and contributes a new perspective by exploring psychiatry residents' attitudes, experiences, comfort levels and learning needs in this area. This work should be useful to professionals working in mental health, and to educators and program directors interested in developing curricula to address training needs in this field, with the ultimate goal of promoting holistic patient-centered care.

In Depression and the Soul, John Peteet proves the old adage that the best physician is also a philosopher. He considers how to approach the problem of depression within a larger context, and reviews current concepts of successful living relative to the heart (emotion and volition), the mind (cognition and coping), and the soul (the self in relation to transcendent reality). Each chapter goes on to further explore the relationship between depression and the context of a patient’s entire life. This is done through consideration of how the existential struggles of depressed individuals engage their spiritual lives, by reviewing current empirical literature on depression and spirituality, comparing the perspectives of various spiritual traditions or world views, and summarizing ways that spirituality and depression interact.

Ärzte, Pflegekräfte und Psychotherapeuten erheben in Europa bislang im Rahmen ihrer Diagnostik in aller Regel keine spirituelle Anamnese und gehen in der Behandlung nur selten auf die spirituellen Bedürfnisse ihrer Patienten ein. Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe betrachten Religiosität und Spiritualität entweder nicht als ihren Zuständigkeitsbereich oder sind unsicher im Umgang damit. Dieses Buch gibt Grundlagen zum Thema und bietet allen Berufsgruppen innerhalb des therapeutischen Teams konkrete Hilfestellungen zum Umgang mit den spirituellen Bedürfnissen ihrer Patienten. Auch problematische Aspekte werden beleuchtet. Gesundheitsrelevante Informationen zu verschiedenen Religionen und ein Muster-Curriculum runden das Werk ab.

Religion (and spirituality) is very much alive and shapes thecultural values and aspirations of psychiatrist and patient alike,as does the choice of not identifying with a particularfaith. Patients bring their beliefs and convictions into thedoctor-patient relationship. The challenge for mental healthprofessionals, whatever their own world view, is to develop andrefine their vocabularies such that they truly understand what iscommunicated to them by their patients. Religion andPsychiatry provides psychiatrists with a framework for thisunderstanding and highlights the importance of religion andspirituality in mental well-being. This book aims to inform and explain, as well as to be thoughtprovoking and even controversial. Patiently and thoroughly,the authors consider why and how, when and where religion (andspirituality) are at stake in the life of psychiatricpatients. The interface between psychiatry and religion isexplored at different levels, varying from daily clinical practiceto conceptual fieldwork. The book covers phenomenology,epidemiology, research data, explanatory models and theories. It also reviews the development of DSM V and its awareness of theimportance of religion and spirituality in mental health. What can religious traditions learn from each other to assistthe patient? Religion and Psychiatry discusses this,as well as the neurological basis of religious experiences. It describes training programmes that successfully incorporateaspects of religion and demonstrates how different religious andspiritual traditions can be brought together to improve psychiatrictraining and daily practice. Describes the relationship of the main world religions withpsychiatry Considers training, policy and service delivery Provides powerful support for more effective partnershipsbetween psychiatry and religion in day to day clinical care This is the first time that so many psychiatrists, psychologistsand theologians from all parts of the world and from so manydifferent religious and spiritual backgrounds have worked togetherto produce a book like this one. In that sense, it truly is a WorldPsychiatric Association publication. Religion and Psychiatry is recommended reading forresidents in psychiatry, postgraduates in theology, psychology andpsychology of religion, researchers in psychiatric epidemiology andtrans-cultural psychiatry, as well as professionals in theology,psychiatry and psychology of religion

As more people practice meditation, yoga, and participate in workshops for personal transformation, increasing numbers of them are having experiences related to spiritual awakening. The problem is they don't know the territory. An intense spiritual experience can seem overwhelming and scary and even be confused with going crazy. This practical book is the classic text, newly updated in 2006 (3rd edition), defining the problems that can arise when someone is disoriented by intense spiritual experiences. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in spiritual experiences and their relationship to mental health and mental illness. It distinguishes the differences between various mental pathologies and indicators of spiritual awakening. It clearly describes the kind of care one needs in a spiritual emergency process and how the care is dramatically different than conventional psychiatric treatment. It traces the history of how signs of spiritual awakening have been perceived in the past. Graduate schools of psychology use this book as a text because it is such a clear statement about the nature of spiritual crises and appropriate treatment. However, it is written in a style that is also appropriate for any adult reader. The author, a transpersonal psychologist, has written five other books on spiritual healing and awakening. The title of the first edition of this book was "A Sourcebook for Helping People in Spiritual Emergency" and was published in 1988.

It presents an overview of the history of the relationship between psychology and spirituality, including a review of contemporary literature related to the subject.

Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D.

Are religious practices involving seeing visions and speaking in tongues beneficial or detrimental to mental health? Do some cultures express distress in bodily form because they lack the linguistic categories to express distress psychologically? Do some religions encourage clinical levels of obsessional behaviour? And are religious people happier than others? By merging the growing information on religion and mental health with that on culture and mental health, Kate Loewenthal enables fresh perspectives on these questions. This book deals with different psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, manic disorders, depression, anxiety, somatisation and dissociation as well as positive states of mind, and analyses the religious and cultural influences on each.

Psychoanalyse und Religion

In diesem Buch aus dem Jahr 1950 hat Fromm erstmals seine Ansichten zur Religion veröffentlicht. Sie sind von seiner Beschäftigung mit der Psychoanalyse ebenso beeinflusst, wie von seiner Auseinandersetzung mit nicht-theistischen Religionen und der Mystik. Fromms Sicht der Religion ist stark davon geprägt, dass er ein autoritäres Religionsverständnis einem humanistischen gegenüberstellt – eine Kontrastierung, die auf der in Psychoanalyse und Ethik ausgeführten Unterscheidung zwischen einer nicht-produktiven und der produktiven Charakterorientierung aufbaut. Da institutionalisierte Volksreligionen in der Regel an den nicht-produktiven Gesellschafts-Charakterorientierungen partizipieren, haben sie nur zu oft negative Wirkungen für das Gelingen des Menschen. Diese Erkenntnis führt bei Fromm zu einer deutlichen Religionskritik, obwohl für ihn das Phänomen des Religiösen ein urmenschliches Phänomen ist. Fromms kritische Auseinandersetzung mit autoritären Religionsphänomenen provozierte eine zum Teil heftig geführte Auseinandersetzung vor allem mit christlichen Theologen des angelsächsischen Raums, die sich gegen Fromms Kritik am calvinistisch geprägten Protestantismus zur Wehr setzten und nicht müde wurden, sein humanistisches Religionsverständnis in Frage zu stellen.
