Joanne Ginter: The Fifth Position

The Fifth Position is a well-timed contribution that explores the historically sticky relationship between psychology
and religion. At its core is a fresh perspective on how to approach an increasingly diverse clientele without
neglecting a central aspect of that diversity — the spectrum of belief on matters of religion. A leading expert in
intercultural resiliency, the author shows how to make space for the client’s culture and religion to be a part of the
therapeutic dialogue so that opportunities for the whole self to come forward are expanded. Each chapter covers a
central element in developing intercultural resiliency and pluralism. The author has also designed a series of
activities to increase self-awareness regarding clinical practices and to enable therapists to support clients no matter
their religious traditions or orientations.
