About the workshop: Religion and spirituality (R/S) may be paramount in a client’s life and be the catalyst for positive change behavior, but it can often be difficult and uncomfortable for a therapist to broach the topic with clients without the proper knowledge and skills on how to integrate it effectively and safely. When exploring these subjects with clients, knowledge about the trauma-informed principles and conducting religious/spiritual assessments is key. Through a trauma-informed lens, we will examine the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) six trauma-informed principles, develop a working definition of religion and spirituality, identify the three types of R/S integration, and explore methods for integrating R/S in session.
- List the six trauma-informed principles
- Explain the four R’s of trauma-informed care
- Define the meaning of R/S and compare the difference between the two terms
- Identify the three ways that R/S can be integrated into session
- Describe one way that R/S assessments can lead to positive change behavior in a client

* Please note that this workshop will include both didactic and experiential learning components. The experiential learning structures include sociometry, demonstrations of a sociodrama, and other experiential processes which often include (optional) personal disclosures from participants. While personal growth is often a byproduct of experiential learning in psychodrama, the primary purpose of this workshop is training. If you are seeking a workshop for personal growth or seeking a professional training event that is entirely didactic (lecture/powerpoint), this is probably not the best workshop for you.
