In the era of globalization debate has turned to the vital need for a thorough understanding of its impact on the spirituality and health of the youth of today.Spiritual Education in a Divided World recognises the urgent need for effective research in this area. This exceptional volume takes an interdisciplinary approach to tackle the key questions. Bringing together leading international experts, including Zygmunt and Mary Grey, the book combines research and training issues with practical professional experiences.

In the second and third sections, practical responses from research and from professional experience are presented and critically evaluated.
