Integrating Spiritual Sensitivity into Your Therapeutic Practice
The speaker for this event is Andrea Murray-Lichtman, MSW, LCSW
Spirituality and religion are powerful forces in many people’s lives, yet they are often relegated to the periphery of psychotherapeutic research and practice. In this workshop, Andrea Murray-Lichtman explores how spirituality can inform, challenge, and deepen psychotherapeutic work with diverse populations. This includes how to engage with clients’ beliefs and existing spiritual traditions within the framework of psychotherapy. She will also address the interplay of spirituality, meaning, and values, and their role in wellbeing, particularly in the face of challenging circumstances. Using case examples, Andrea Murray-Lichtman will illustrate ways to address common clinical concerns in a spiritually sensitive practice, regardless of the therapeutic approach.
