Believe it or Not! Ethical Issues in Regard to Religion and Spirituality in Mental Health Treatment
What do you do when a devoutly spiritual client comes to you, wants to include their spirituality in their treatment and you are not very familiar with their spirituality? What ethical issues are raised by treating people from diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds? What ethical issues arise when you, as a provider, have strong religious or spiritual beliefs?
This interactive training will help participants understand the ethical issues that may arise in treating client from different religious backgrounds and how religious competency is an ethical issue. Participants will learn how to address a client’s religion and spirituality in an ethical way, if and when it is ethical to incorporate it into treatment, and some common issues pertinent to treating clients from different religions.

How do we identify addiction or help someone who is in denial of their addiction? What are the common psychological experiences of someone struggling with addiction? What clinical approaches and skills seem to work well? Exploring what addiction is through understanding the experiences of those who call themselves ‘addicts’ will help demystify treating this sometimes confusing and anxiety-provoking mental health issue.
This session will look at the definition of addiction, the experience of the ‘addict,’ and general principles that are helpful in treatment. The purpose is to help the clinician who does not specialize in addictions to feel more confident in their ability to assess, understand and treat individuals who come to them for help.
