Our Healing: An Empirical Study of the Interrelationship Between Therapeutic Intervention and Spiritual Intervention in a Social Work Private Practice


This article is about the exploration of the interrelationship of therapy and spirituality in a private practice. The study draws on qualitative research for a PhD and asks what clients want in their counseling and spiritual healing.

Clients were invited to participate in the research after experiencing a social work mental health service in interrelationship with managed spiritual interventions. Mental health professions have discussed the inclusion of spirituality, however the inclusion of the client's voice on this topic is yet to be fully explored.

It is hoped this research will inform professionals on psychosocial spiritual issues. The PhD proposed the resurrection theory based on the results of the research study. In this way a deeper and enhanced understanding of the meaning-making surrounding the interrelationship of spirituality and mental health can emerge.
