Dr. Watson developed the carative factors and the caritas processes that affect her four main principles to provide kindhearted, holistic care. “Watson 's 10 carative factors are: forming humanistic-altruistic value systems, instilling faith-hope, cultivating a sensitivity to self and others, developing a helping-trust relationship, promoting an expression of feelings, using problem-solving for decision-making, promoting teaching-learning,
As such, this theory stipulates the importance of the client confining in the counselor before the commencement of the counselling process (Johnson, Ridley & Nelsen, 2000). Moreover, this approach utilizes the combination of a secular and religious approach to dealing with psychological issues. As such, the counselor can draw insight from scientific principles and complement the decisions made with the religious aspect. As such, there is an inclusion of the provisions stipulated in the biblical counselling theory. The utilization of religiously sensitive interventions to neutralize psychological problems as pertained in this approach are similar to Crabb’s
The human mind’s ability and innate desire to justify and explain the world and its phenomena has led to some of the most significant and world-altering discoveries and inventions, illustrated throughout the renaissance, enlightenment, scientific revolution, and industrial revolution. Logical pursuits comprise a significant capstone of human nature and progress. However, according to Rudolf Otto in The Idea of the Holy, these tendencies have created different dimensions of religion; the rational and non-rational, with the latter often times overlooked. The most significant difference between the rational and non-rational aspects of religion deal with their respective emphasis on reason and feeling. Rudolph Otto prioritizes the non-rational as offering a truer understanding of religion because he claims the core of all religious life revolves around experiences and feeling, not simply rational thought.
I have always viewed counseling as giving advice. I realized counseling is so much more, it is listening and helping the client discover their own truth. A person wants to be heard and understood. Change in a client is produced through genuine empathy and support. A client needs affirmation and to feel empowered.

In the journey of faith so many holy men and women have tried to discover various ways and means to connect themselves with the Lord overcoming the existing spiritual obstacles. Among them, St. Ignatius of Loyola based on his own experience, found practical language to explain the contrasting movements that operate within one’s heart. He also developed certain tools to recognize these inner movements and respond to them effectively. He outlines all these tools and rules in his famous Spiritual Exercises. 1.1.

Greenleaf (1970) recognized that organizations as well as individuals could be servant-leaders, identifying key characteristics of servant leadership and provide a creative lens from which to view the complexities of servant leadership; listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the group and building community (Northouse, 2014). Greenleaf defined, servant leadership as “a philosophy and set of practices that enriches the lives of individuals, builds better organizations and ultimately create a more just and caring world” (Center for Servant Leadership, n.d.). Servant leaders like Henry John Heinz, who founded the Heinz Company, have long recognized the importance of treating others with dignity, respect and compassion. Servant leaders, according to Spears (2010) seek to “involve others in decision making” exhibit “ethical and caring behavior” and develop and improve the “growth of workers while improving the caring and quality of organizational life” (Spears, 2010, p.

By sharing his experiences with Brother Wayne and the Dalai Lama Eboo Patel emphasizes the need for religious pluralism and invites us to embrace religious
In the third, and my favorite chapter of McMinn’s (2011) book, he writes on the subject of prayer. McMinn (2011) states that prayer is the main element of growth in the life of the counselor and his or her client, and how the counselor must have a healthy prayer life of his or her own in order to effectively utilize prayer in counseling. However, McMinn stresses that it is extremely important in how the counselor introduces prayer into the therapy sessions,
Today, mental health professionals have become aware of how spirituality can enhance resilience (McGoldrick, et al., 2010).

This is also way it is so important to allow the Holy Spirit to guide and continuously be assess the client’s needs and the counselors motives (Tan, 2007). Another verbatim example was given about how to integrate scripture into a therapy session.
The solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) approach believe clients hold the key to their own success, therefore our job as therapists is to guide or help them to construct goals. According to Metcalf (2011) solution-focused models have a worldwide appeal among practitioners because of their simple and practical ways of working with people. As a therapist using SFBT specific guided questions, client have a chance to think about how they been coping or coped in the past. This line of questioning help demonstrate to clients their strength and how in the past they were capable of coping with challenges in their lives. Additionally I think it’s very important we as therapist or human service workers do not go into the therapy session with any preconceived
