Clinical Education Programs
While most therapists today are open to integrating spirituality into their therapy, meaningful training for it is scarce. This workshop will help therapists intentionally integrate spirituality in client-centered ways by learning:
A greater understanding of the spiritual dimension and how it intersects and is distinct from theology and religious practice.
How to integrate spirituality in ways that honor clients’ healthy religious beliefs, practices, and traditions, while also working through unhealthy ones.
How to bring spirituality into sessions by focusing on spiritual resources.
A spiritual, mental, physical, and relational diagnostic scheme with strategies on how to seek a healthy integration.
Samaritan Counseling, Guidance, Consulting is a Western Pennsylvania leader in offering spiritually-integrated psychotherapy. Our staff are well trained and experienced in this longstanding Samaritan practice.
The Rev. Graham Standish, PhD, MDiv, MA, MSW, executive director, and Susan Young, LPC, CEAP, clinical director.
