Integrating Spirituality in Psychotherapy: A Path Toward Resilience and Transformation
Date: April 13th, 2018
Time: 9am – 4pm PST
ancient traditions speak about transforming suffering into a resource for internal strength and growth. Although traumatic experiences can sometimes result in psychological distress, they can also result in positive psychological changes. Also known as post-traumatic growth, these positive changes may include the development of new perspectives, personal growth, the cultivation of one’s own spirituality and connecting with something greater than themselves—regardless of religious affiliation.
This course for counselors, therapists and other practitioners will explore the integration of spirituality in therapy. Participants will examine psycho-spiritual development models and the therapist’s role in facilitating the meaning-making process, as well as how this process might help clients cultivate their own spirituality through adverse experiences. Furthermore, a portion of this workshop will discuss and consider the clinicians spirituality and the self-of-the-therapist.
