  • THE COUNSELOR if Soul and Spirit Matter

    Inspirations from Anthroposophy

    Edited by David Tresemer


    "In an anthroposophic approach to counseling and psychotherapy we integrate the whole paradigm of spiritual science into the contemporary forms of psychology, thereby reformulating a psychology inclusive of body, soul, and spirit." - Dr. William Bento, former executive director of the Association for Anthroposophic Psychology, author of Lifting the Veil of Mental Illness.

    The art of counseling is practiced in many settings. An uncle counsels a troubled niece. A licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) works in a treatment center for drug addicts. A counselor can also be everything in between the two.

    If you consider everyone who mentors another—life coaches, police officers, wedding planners, lawyers, intimate friends—counseling includes all of us. Whereas mainstream counseling psychology has been moving increasingly toward cognitive and pharmacological approaches, this book brings us back to a psychology of soul and spirit. Through the guidance of Anthroposophy, the becoming human being, and Sophia, and divine wisdom, counselors will rediscover here an approach to people that has the heart of soul, and the light of spirit.
