MFT 6651: Spirituality and Health (2022-2023)

View all MFT classes

This seminar explores the impact of individual and family beliefs/meanings regarding the illness experience, treatment, suffering, death and thus, the purpose and meaning of life. Particular focus will be given to eliciting patient/family beliefs around internal resources and faith practices, as well as external resources: family, church, and community. This course will also review how to work with family belief systems and construct healing beliefs, how to negotiate when other treatment providers and/or the family have conflicting beliefs, and how to strengthen a culturally sensitive provider/patient/family relationship. Empirical support for the relationship between health and spirituality will be addressed.
