Resources: Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group

Resources for the Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group

The chief criterion for inclusion in this list is that an item is likely to be of interest to members of the Special Interest Group.

Many colleagues have made suggestions, and more would be welcome, to help fill the gaps and improve the balance. (Please provide all publishing details and a brief annotation). Inevitably there has to be selection and the SPSIG Steering Group makes the final decision about what to include. Books listed are almost all recent, since to tackle the historic literature would be overwhelming.

The annotations are mostly personal, and are intended to be helpful rather than definitive. Material between single quotes is from dust jackets, blurbs or reviews, but has been vetted for relevance and appositeness. Books starred are regarded as directly concerned with spirituality as it relates to the practice of psychiatry and medicine; such categorisation is no more than indicative.
