This breakthrough work presents an integrative therapeutic approach that ties Eastern philosophy and practical techniques to Western forms of therapy in order to create effective, positive, and transformative changes in individuals and families. Integrative therapy focuses on the mind-body-spirit relationship, recognizes spirituality as a fundamental domain of human existence, acknowledges and utilizes the power of the mind as well as the body, and reaches beyond self-actualization or symptom reduction to broaden a perception of self that connects individuals to a larger sense of oneself and to the community. As interest in non-Western curative techniques continues to grow among Americans, Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit Social Work is the first book that connects Western therapeutic techniques with Eastern philosophy and practices, while also providing a comprehensive and pragmatic practice framework for social work, psychology, counseling, and nursing professionals.

The authors expertly and innovatively provide a pragmatic, step-by-step description of assessment and treatment techniques that employ an integrative, holistic perspective. Beginning by establishing the conceptual framework of integrative body-mind-spirit social work, they go on to expound a thorough step-by-step description of assessment and treatment techniques that utilize integrative and holistic perspectives. Several case studies are explored in order to provide empirical evidence that integrative body-mind-spirit social work is indeed a practical therapeutic approach in bringing about tangible changes in clients. The authors also explore ethical issues and tips for learning Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit social work.

Professionals in social work, psychology, counseling, and nursing, as well as graduate students in courses on integral, alternative, or complementary clinical practice will find this to be a much-needed resource that complements the growing interest in spiritual and integrative approaches to traditional Western psychotherapy.

Mo Yee Lee is an Associate Professor of Social Work at Ohio State University. Cecilia Chan is a Professor of Social Work and Social Administration, University of Hong Kong. Siu-Man Ng is a Lecturer and Clinical Coordinator and Pamela Leung is a Clinical Associate, both at the Center on Behavioral Health.
