This book brings together the historically separate domains of mental health and spiritual awareness in a holistic framework called InnerView Guidance. Building on strength-based and solution-oriented approaches to therapy, the InnerView model offers a unique psychospiritual approach which can be applied in any of the helping professions.

InnerView recognizes the individual's need for internal cohesion between psychological growth and spiritual development. It is a principle-driven paradigm that foregrounds 'soul work' as a central evolutionary task. The book presents the core concepts and methodology involved in the alignment of ego with soul. Chapters explain the theoretical roots of the model, explore practical applications in therapeutic settings, and introduce InnerView as a rich synergy of psychotherapy and spiritual guidance.

Taking an original and cutting-edge approach, this valuable text will be essential reading for scholars and students, as well as practitioners in the fields of psychotherapy, counselling, life coaching, social work, and spiritual care.

Reviews and Endorsements

"In the rush of modern psychology to find acceptance among the empirical sciences which dominated the last two centuries, mainstream psychology forgot the core of what it means to be human: the need for meaning, and the various pathologies which arise out of the thwarting of spiritual life. The authors of this study called Principles of InnerView Guidance seek to reconnect the life of the spirit with the disorders of mind and body, and as such, bring a powerful summons for inclusion of the reality of the soul in the work of healing." - James Hollis, Jungian Analyst in Washington, DC and author of sixteen books, the latest being Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times.

"It is refreshing and heartening to read the ways in which the authors champion the perspective of the soul rather than that of the ego. I heartily recommend this book to all who are concerned with the inner life." - Lionel Corbett, Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. Author of The Sacred Cauldon: Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Practice.

"Principles of InnerView Guidance is an absorbing, intelligent, and most of all, encouraging guide for therapists—and clients on a path to wholeness. Combining an historical perspective with the best contemporary findings, the book forms a bridge between authentic presence and the inner world. In addition, we find a cogent sense of soul as deeply significant in therapy and in life. We have seen many books attempting to integrate psychological work and spiritual practice. I see this book as highly successful in that endeavor."
David Richo, author of Triggers: How to Stop Reacting and Start Healing.

"In a secular, materialist culture, the irrepressible spiritual dimension of human experience and understanding has been badly neglected for too long. The work of Speyer and Yaphe takes an important step towards correcting that omission. InnerView Guidance, uniquely beneficial in terms of personal growth to both client and healer, may well be the healthiest approach to psychological care yet invented. This fine book, calmly asserting the essential truth that spiritually whole lives matter, deserves the widest possible readership. It is a masterpiece of therapeutic wisdom, kindness and care." - Larry Culliford, author of several influential books including The Psychology of Spirituality, Much Ado about Something, and The Big Book of Wisdom.

"This book is a scholarly and heartfelt weaving together of the personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal aspects of psychotherapy. InnerView and the 4Fold Path are excellent models for understanding how the sometimes ineffable dimensions of soul and spirit can be practically implemented in clinical practice, for a much richer, deeper, and more profound treatment effect. Designed for professionals, it is also a great read for anyone interested in the depth dimensions of psychology." - Cassandra Vieten, Visiting Scholar, University of California San Diego, Executive Director, John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation, Senior Fellow and Past President, Institute of Noetic Sciences, and author of Spiritual and Religious Competencies in Clinical Practice: Guidelines for Psychotherapists and Mental Health Professionals.
