PSYX907: Religious and Spiritual Diversity in Clinical Practice

Credits 3
An advanced class that focuses on the wide range of spiritual and religious client values and concerns. This course invites students to explore their own attitudes and viewpoints related to the topic of spiritual and religious identity, both personal and cultural. Postmodern schools of thought continue to underscore the socially constructed nature of identity and the importance of making visible the fluid nature of power, privilege, and cultural context in which we all live, as individuals and communities. Through group dialogues, readings, and applied-learning exercises, the course seeks to create an environment in which all students may broaden and deepen awareness and appreciation of personal differences and commonalities as related to clinical practice.
