Description

In treating substance use and mental disorders, spirituality is an important aspect to be addressed as an essential part of recovery. First, coming out of the Twelve Step community and then finding its way into more clinically grounded treatment interventions, spirituality, and its importance has been recognized, but its definition has been unclear. This workshop will give a clinical definition of spirituality and its clinical presentation.

Utilizing the Spiritual Platform™ as a foundation and the four pillars that support it (choice, risk, relationship, and participation in wonder), participants will learn how substance use and mental disorders erode these structures and how recovery rebuilds them. Recognizing that spirituality is but one dimension within the bio-psycho-social-spiritual experiential model of addictive disease and mental disorders, there will be a brief discussion on spirituality’s healing role in all aspects of the illnesses.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
  • Psychologists
Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Define spirituality within the clinical framework of the bio-psycho-social-spiritual frame of reference defining addictive diseases and mental disorders.
  2. Describe the role of choice, risk, relationships, and the participation of wonder in the expression of spirituality.
  3. Define spirituality as one dimension within the complex expression of substance use and mental disorders.
