ED 620 - Spiritual Dimensions of Counseling

A client’s spiritual beliefs are often the primary factors in a client’s worldview. It is typical for clients to struggle with their spiritual beliefs whenever a belief system they have about the way life “should be” conflicts with their current life experience. This course guides the student to better understand the significance of a client’s spiritual beliefs as they impact the therapeutic alliance and overall healing process. An emphasis is placed on distinguishing spirituality from religion. A focus on both school and clinical settings is stressed. This is an elective course in the PsyD program.
