About this item

Psychologists explore prospective psychology, which they define here as the experience of feeling "called," whether by a profession, a deity, fate, or other agency. Considering first scientific and secular perspectives then sacred perspectives, they examine such topics as neuropsychological and personalogical aspects of spirituality, calling counselors: a novel calling intervention for career development and well-being, the normalcy of the paranormal: numinous experiences throughout the life span, the contemporary serpent handlers of Appalachia and their experience of being called by God, and mystical experience and religious calling.
