Many clinicians seek to engage client’s religious issues, but out of concern for offending, may avoid asking about faith and spirituality beliefs. In two sessions, this program will address natural ways to engage a client’s beliefs, reasons why such engagement can be helpful to the client and approaches that may not be helpful to the client and that may be driven by the therapist’s discomfort with the issue. Case material will be offered for consideration.


 Learning Objectives:

1.  Understand basic research that documents the role of faith in health and resiliency.

2.  Consider ways to engage the client that are appropriate and helpful.

3.  Identify interventions that may be premature and not helpful.
