HOL 6910 - Spirituality and the Therapeutic Process

This seminar will explore the relationship of spirituality and the therapeutic process as they relate to clinical practice. Spirituality will be studied as an important resource in psychological health and in healing. In addition, the spiritual lives of therapists will be looked at as a means to support their ability to offer the core therapeutic conditions. Theoretical models for integrating spirituality into practice will be offered and specific teachings and practices from a variety of religious traditions will be presented as resources for the healing process. One goal of the seminar is to enable those in the helping professions to work with their client's spiritual life without imposing their own framework. This course is designed for all health and human services workers, but has a special emphasis on the therapeutic process. 

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to graduate students only.
