Evidence-based intercultural behavioral health care that promotes spiritual wholeness and integration

  1. Describe an evidence-based understanding of spiritual wholeness and integration in behavioral health care.
  2. Identify the four markers of spiritual integration in behavioral health care.
  3. Describe the two key ingredients of an intercultural approach to spiritually integrated behavioral health care: (1) finding spiritual practices that foster an embodied self-compassion for behavioral health clients and (2) co-creating with behavioral health clients values and beliefs about suffering grounded in experiences of embodied self-compassion and relational goodness.

Understanding the moral injury and stress of behavioral health
clients

  2. Describe research findings on the role of spiritual struggles/ resources in alleviating or exacerbating the moral injury and posttraumatic stress of behavioral health clients.
  3. Highlight how an evidence-based intercultural approach can promote spiritual integration of moral injury and stress with behavioral health clients.

Session 3 (2 CE’s):

Applying an evidence-based intercultural approach to moral stress and injury with behavioral health clients

At the end of session three, mental health professionals will be able to:

  1. Understand the ways that negative moral emotions like shame, guilt, and fear of causing harm generate a life limiting (embedded) spiritual orientation for behavioral health clients to experiences of moral stress and injury that are reinforced by family and cultural values that are sexist, heterosexist, racist, classist, and ableist.
  2. Understand how spiritual practices that help behavioral health clients experience self-compassion and goodness in their bodies reveal the often embedded life-limiting shame-based values and beliefs about moral injury and stress experienced within their bodies and automatic stress responses.
  3. Through case study and self reflections, understand how to co-create intentional values and beliefs with behavioral health clients about experiences of moral stress and injury that are lifegiving and complex enough to bear the weight of such suffering.

Closing: 4:45 PM – 5:00PM
