Talking Therapies Final Report

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The Talking Therapies Project aimed to nurture an ongoing conversation about the intersections, interactions and boundaries between counselling and psychotherapy on the one hand, and faith and spirituality on the other hand. To get conversations started, we shared stories about the development of counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland with some of the communities that had been involved in that history. These stories were drawn from an earlier research project entitled Theology and Therapy, a collaboration between the School of Divinity and Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Edinburgh. While the earlier project studied the role Christianity and “post‐Christian” spiritual practices played in the development of counselling from 1945 to 2000, the Talking Therapies project sought to learn about the place of spirituality and faith in contemporary Scottish counsellors' lives and practices.
