International Bipolar Foundation answeredBecause of a renewed interest in treating the whole person, more people are seeking out mental health professionals who will incorporate their spirituality in the treatment process. Professionals like those with the American Association of Pastoral Counselors receive training in both psychology and theology. These counselors can add a spiritual perspective to the professional counseling relationship by incorporating a person's spirituality with sensitivity to cross-cultural traditions. Mental health professionals who are sensitive to and respectful of the spiritual dimension can "walk with" persons as they seek their own path to personal growth and healing.
