* This is a video recording of a continuing education session held on February 11, 2022.


Description: This training will serve as a resource for counselors who integrate faith and spirituality into their counseling. We will look at religious and spiritual trauma definitions and the detrimental effect it has on the individual. Counselors will gain an understanding of religious/spiritual competencies, appropriate treatment and techniques, and assessment tools that can aid their understanding of clients' needs. Dialogue and break-out opportunities will enrich the experience as we learn from each other how to best care for our clients.
