SPIRITUALITY & INDIVIDUALITY – Live Teleconference Call (2 In-Person CEU’s)

October 22, 2017 @ 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Spirituality, a search for transcendent meaning or the belief in some sort of greater existence outside of humankind, can be linked to religion but the practice of spirituality is generally considered to go beyond religion and link individuals with something larger, such as the universe itself.

Both therapists and people seeking treatment may hesitate to include spirituality or religion in the practice of therapy, due to the potential of differing beliefs and the possible controversy of the topic. But research suggests a therapist’s inclusion of an individual’s spiritual beliefs may assist in therapy and in the process of healing.

Spirituality is generally considered to be broader than any religion one might practice, as it takes into account cognitive and philosophic areas of thought as well as aspects of  emotions and behavior. Some might describe spirituality as the attempt to understand one’s nature or the meaning of one’s existence, but spirituality is also linked to one’s path to internal awareness and happiness. Many cultures and belief systems hold that one’s spirit is the essence of one’s existence, and thus, spirituality may also describe for some people their connection to each other and to themselves.

Workshop Objectives:  

  1. To identify how ‘spirituality’ is utilized in your practice
  2.  To recognize pitfalls in the use of spirituality.
  3.  To script a positive way to include spirituality within our practice.
