Dr. Dean Hammer, Affiliate Faculty in AUNE’s PsyD program, had an article Cultivating Soulfulness in Psychotherapy published in APA Journal: Spirituality in Clinical Practice. 2019, Vol. 6, No. 2, 139–143.
“This reflection highlights the importance of reclaiming a focus on the soul in my practice of existential-based, spiritually oriented psychotherapy. My clinical experience and long-standing meditation practice guided the process of synthesizing concepts and theories regarding the role of the soul in psychotherapy. A primary goal is to illuminate how the cultivation of a soulful internal space within the therapist can enhance the therapeutic encounter,” wrote Dr. Hammer.
