This training will equip clinical social workers to engage with the religious and spiritual diversity of clients more directly. Drawing on evidence from previous research and presented through a combination of didactic learning, personal reflection and group-based examination of clinical case studies, clinicians will increase their understanding of religious coping and other benefits of engaging with their clients’ spiritual identities. Participants will also become familiar four assessment tools and receive a brief overview of spiritually-sensitive interventions in various modalities, including CBT and ACT, while examining ethical and practical challenges that may arise. This intentionally reflective and clinically-focused training was developed as part of a doctoral research capstone project; pre- and post-test evaluations will help guide further development of the training.
