Spiritual Crisis: Surviving Trauma to the Soul

No matter who you are, what faith you adhere to, what your income level, or how pious you believe you are, sometimes bad things happen. The nature of living as a human being is that our lives are filled with experiences, change, and growth. Sometimes we perceive these new situations as positive or as just requiring a little time or effort to adjust to the newness. However, the majority of us have experienced something more dramatic, a death of a loved one, a terrible mistake, illness, loss of a job, victimization, divorce, or something else that shook our world to the core and made us question who we were and what we believed. We were in crisis.

Often, I think that when we experience a trauma, we assume that we should just deal with the situation and move on. We belittle ourselves by saying that so and so got through a similar situation without any trouble. The truth is that we all experience things differently and more often than not that other person is just hiding his or her issues. Pushing through trauma, trying to pretend that everything is fine, or beating yourself up isn't going to help the problem. The only real way to get through a crisis is to understand and work through the real problem at hand, the fact that this new situation requires new adaptations that may even require a completely different way of thinking or different foundational beliefs.

Spiritual Crisis educates both the counselor and the average person going through crisis. Both will find this book extremely useful. I personally wish that all hospitals, schools, police stations, and places of worship would hand a copy of Spiritual Crisis to everyone that walks through their doors.
