For mental health service users, spirituality and faith are closely connected with questions of relationship, transcendence, and finding meaning and purpose in life – questions best approached by way of narrative (or story).

In clinical practice, narrative can provide a means of exploring the ethical and professional dilemmas that are encountered when spiritual and/or religious concerns are in evidence. Narrative has been recognised as important in both medicine and theology, and now it can be employed as a framework for addressing spirituality and religion in clinical psychiatric practice, encompassing addictions, liaison and forensic psychiatry, and spanning all ages and cultures.

Breaks new ground in using a narrative to explore the importance and challenge of spirituality in clinical psychiatric practice.
Includes narrative excerpts and case illustrations to show how spiritual concerns can be included in a range of psychiatric treatment options.
Provides a tool for exploring the ethical and professional dilemmas spirituality still raises in mental healthcare.
Presents contributions from patients, chaplains, and leading psychiatrists and clinical psychologists.
