Wednesday Pre-Conference Institute:

W1 Skills for Engaging the Spiritual Dimension in Psychotherapy and Healthcare Settings (CE units available)

For most people, spirituality is a fundamental part of the human experience. However, few psychotherapy or healthcare programs include advanced training in how to integrate the spiritual domain into their work. This workshop focuses on concepts, attitudes, and skills that together make up spiritual competencies: taking a spiritual history, understanding the role of spiritual practices in health and wellbeing, differentiating spiritual issues from physical and psychological symptoms, and working with spiritual or religious problems. In this workshop you will learn what these competencies are, how you can apply them in your setting, and specific ways to appropriately engage the spiritual dimension in your work.
