Spiritual Issues and Burnout in Mental Health Care
Recognizing the importance of religious and spiritual beliefs in our clients is an important component of a mental health assessment. Many providers are uncomfortable bringing up the topic of spirituality and are uncertain about the best ways to maintain therapeutic boundaries. This presentation is designed to increase sensitivity to the spiritual aspects of our clients’ lives and provide ideas how to work with these often sensitive and personal issues.
Professional stress and burnout are part of the psychological reality of many people in mental health care. Knowing how to assess yourself can prevent problems with poor performance, boundary crossings, and personal health. Learn more at this Wednesday, Oct. 3 Journey Professional Development training.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Breakdown the demographics of religious groups in America.
- Analyze the importance of anomalous experiences in individual’s lives.
- List screening questions for spiritual assessment in clients.
- Discuss common boundary problems around spiritual issues.
- Examine when stress is leading to burnout and some remedies.
