  • God Image & Mental Health: Ways to Assess a Client’s Theological Understanding by Chris O'Rear, M.Div. M.M.F.T.

    Friday, August 20, 2021

    12-1 PM

    Understanding our clients theologically is more than knowing their religion and a person’s theology is more than their professed beliefs. A person’s lived theology is an innate way of relating to God, oneself, the world, and others. A therapist who cares about understanding a client spiritually can develop an awareness of things to listen for and themes to attend to in order to accomplish this kind of understanding. This program can assist therapists develop sensitivity to the spiritual and theological themes present in their clients.

    Goals
    • Participants will understand the formation of an individual’s “Image of God” and its connection to mental health and outlook.
    • Participants will be able to better able to evaluate and describe an individual’s spiritual beliefs and understanding.
    • Participants will better understand the primary ways that people make sense of tragedy in the world and in their own lives.
    • Participants will be able to better relate to care receivers they encounter with theological understandings different from their own.
