Historically, there has been a rift between psychology and religion, but as helping professionals we need to recognize the significant contribution of religion and spirituality to an individual’s overall wellbeing. There are numerous studies providing empirical evidence suggesting a strong link between a person’s spiritual and religious beliefs and their physical and mental health. If the client is open to receiving spirituality, it can be used as a tool to enhance coping in times of loss, conflicts, disappointments and health problems.
The most relevant of religion is often found in stressful situations. As therapists, we must be respectful of all faith traditions and our client’s personal spiritual beliefs, while also creating a safe place for our clients to preserve, evaluate, question, and revise their beliefs.
This seminar will explore the effects of spirituality and faith upon wellbeing. It will also provide insight into major spiritual traditions and Great World Religions. For better treatment outcomes and plans, attendees will learn how to incorporate faith, nature meditation, mindfulness, prayer, and prayer into their therapeutic processes.
