It's All Spiritual: The Role of Spirituality in Treatment ~ Chemical Dependency Training Consortium Event
This training is provided by Recovery Village at Ridgefield
Goal of Training
NAADAC has identified that addressing spirituality in the recovery and counseling process in a component of a counselors cultural competency. Spirituality is a vital aspect of culture, and failure to acknowledge, understand, and embrace spirituality may be culturally nonresponsive to client needs. The aim of this training is to help providers increase their understanding of the importance of addressing spirituality in the recovery process. We will look at the ethical perspectives, the assessment process of working with people in regards to their spiritual beliefs, learning new exercises to incorporate spiritual thinking, and how to incorporate the religious community into the recovery process.
This training will provide participants with the ability to:
- Define the difference between spirituality and religion,
- Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of exploring spiritual issues in the treatment of addiction,
- Identify the ethical issues that arise from addressing spirituality in counseling,
- Utilize assessment tools for exploring spirituality with clients, and
- Describe the basic foundations of AA/12-step models.
