The results reflect two main topics and several subsequent headlines with regards to: 1) the psychologist's professional approach and 2) the area in between the psychologist's personal and professional approach to spirituality. From empirical studies and relevant theories, a discussion is held about the psychological approaches to spirituality in psychotherapy. The results indicate that how one works with spirituality as a psychologist is influenced by one's theoretical framework, the workplace environment and one's private approach. (Less)
