Understanding spiritual assessment and intervention in China: A roadmap for addressing client spirituality in an ethical and professional manner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Spirituality is an important factor in the lives of many people in China. Yet, little information exits on how to address Chinese clients’ spiritual beliefs appropriately. This paper addresses this gap in the literature by articulating a roadmap for working with client spirituality in an ethical and professional manner. Rationales for administering a spiritual assessment are provided along with a brief overview of the process and options for conducting such assessments. The paper concludes by reviewing two prominent spiritual interventions that may resonate with many Chinese clients, both in China and other parts of the world.
