Integrating Client-centered Spirituality into Therapy Approaches

Course Code: ST-1/1

Regardless of the therapeutic modality, traditional Psychotherapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, …, we are called to engage the client as a whole being – and the client’s spiritual beliefs, or lack of, are most often a cornerstone of their formative construct of their world. “I’m not religious – I’m spiritual,” Training for Therapistsis a disclaimer so often heard from clients. Despite any separation of church and state, religion and spirituality has deeply impacted our culture, lives and ways of being.

This daylong workshop helps the care provider to provide language, opportunity and ‘space’ in session for the impact and exploration of their client’s spiritual understandings.

This workshop is a combination of engaging presentation and group work. The workshop is NOT based in any one spiritual or religious dogma. No previous work in Spiritual/Pastoral Care is presumed.

Being a High Impact Presenter and Trainer Level One

As therapists we have a plethora of skills – often heavily weighted in the art and science of listening. This half-day course provides you with powerful concrete communication skills to allow you to not only present to others in an engaging manner, but to create a presentation from which people glean deep learnings. You will learn how to present to a group utilizing skills that engage and enroll your audience, and result in your listeners being able to hear and embrace the gifts you offer. No more fear of public speaking, boring presentations or ‘death by power-point!’ These concrete skills will help position you as an expert in your area, and teach you how to be a powerful presenter to help others.

Healthy Sexuality in the Therapeutic Relationship

Beginning with Self – Understanding Your Relationship between Spirituality and Sexuality

Course Code SST-1/3

The topic of sex and sexual expression can be challenging, if not uncomfortable for many in the mental health field. This deeply intensive weekend guides you through a personal journey of exploration to help you unpack your understanding, beliefs and your relationship to your body, sex and sexuality. This weekend begins with our selves – and our own connection and beliefs around these topics and issues in a spiritual context. The lens through which we view these issues is often so deeply imbedded that we are challenged to be in an objective therapeutic relationship with our clients around this often complicated relationship between sex and spirituality.

This workshop is religion/faith neutral and will respect your personal boundaries in respect to any interpersonal physical expressions. Elements of the workshop will draw upon common understandings from various spiritual beliefs as ways to understand your personal, and your clients’ base worldviews.

Interactive lectures, group work, guided meditations, and other processes are integrated into this fun, insightful and powerfully moving workshop. Woven through the weekend will be the conversation of how your beliefs may or may not impact the therapeutic relationship.

As this weekend can be therapeutic in nature – it is a personal exploration in order to grow into a place from which you can help others – you are required to sign a confidential release with respect to your psychological health.
