Current Status

Get Started

This five hour training will start with a discussion around utilizing spirituality in the clinical setting.     Spirituality can be an integral component in people’s lives and a useful tool as we interact with our clients/patients. The training will provide a rationale for integrating a spiritual approach as we provide support for our clients and patients, along with the ethical role of the helping professional in working with diverse populations. Practical strategies for incorporating spiritual assessments and interventions into these clinical settings will be presented.  The second half of the presentation will focus on cultural humility. As helping professionals, we know the importance of cultural competency in the practice environment.  Cultural competency focuses on gaining knowledge and understanding of different cultures and practices.  However, in order to provide a client-centered and ethical provision of care – a newer idea has emerged around the concept of cultural humility.  In this thought-provoking discussion, we will take this practice one step further to acknowledge and reflect on our personal experiences, biases, and prejudices.  Embarking on a journey of critical self-reflection, discovery, and humility.
