This article presents the core of individual self-actualization (Maslow, 1986, 1998) found in individuals' spiritual identity, as illustrated through a case study, its debriefing, and identification of counterindications for the clinical use of spiritual interventions. Future research possibilities on the topic of spirituality and self-actualization are provided.
