Abstract: The growing necessity for psychotherapists and clergy to collaborate in the treatment of clients with psychological trauma is underscored in this article. The authors provide a literature review and draw on their personal treatment experience to illustrate the spiritual and religious issues of clients and the necessity for spiritual and religious assessment and treatment plans for this population. Four theories that highlight the body-soul connection involved in psychological trauma are briefly presented. The need for cross-professional training for both psychotherapists and clergy is noted.
