Moore contributes to psychospiritual handbook

In 2005, Haworth Press published The Psychospiritual Clinician’s Handbook: Alternative Methods for Understanding and Treating Mental Disorders with a foreword by Thomas Moore. Sharon G. Mijares, PhD and Gurucharan Singh Khalsa, PhD edited the book and their Introduction is available as a free 30-page PDF file. Rev. Dr. John Bauman reviews the handbook in the June 21, 2006 issue of PlainViews, "an e-newsletter for chaplains and other spiritual care providers," at the bottom of the page. This summer, on June 13, 2006, Moore spoke at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville about "Humanizing Medicine."

About the book, according to the publisher:
"Increasing numbers of people are moving beyond psychological therapy to seek alternative spiritual perspectives to medical and mental health care such as yoga and meditation. The Psychospiritual Clinician’s Handbook: Alternative Methods for Understanding and Treating Mental Disorders provides the latest theoretical perspectives and practical applications by recognized experts in positive and integrative psychotherapy. Leading clinicians examine and re-examine their therapeutic worldviews and attitudes to focus on the right problems to solve — for the whole person.
This essential handbook is a window on the quiet revolution now sweeping the field of psychology, that of locating the whole human being in the center of the therapeutic process..."
