Faith Leaders as Strategic Partners

Traumatic experiences of all types impact what people believe about what they can’t see—their forms of the why we are and what we are meant to become. How can spirituality, and faith influence healing? In what ways can service providers and service recipients explore matters of faith? Everyone involved in the healing process has some form of spirituality, and there are times when the service of rituals and community unique to faith communities can be immensely supportive—or retraumatizing. In this 75 minute interactive workshop, participants explore these questions and more, identifying and considering different paradigms for relationship and referral among the community of healers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the role faith and spirituality play in survival and healing
  2. Recognize the importance of the paradigms of spirituality for service providers, recipients, and faith leaders
  3. Differentiate between language and models that help and hurt when working with faith communities
  4. Describe ways in which service providers can ally with faith leaders
