Relational Spirituality in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Relational Spirituality in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

0.00 - 60.00
Although once marginalized, spirituality and religion (SR) have now become established areas of ethical and clinical consideration in clinical practice. All mental health fields recognize that SR are important dimensions of human diversity that can impact clients’ health and well-being, yet many clinicians are uncertain how to effectively engage these dynamics in psychotherapy. This workshop offers a relational approach to SR dynamics in psychotherapy with sensitivity to intersectional diversity considerations. Key areas of clinical research on SR dynamics in clinical practice will be summarized using a relational spirituality model (RSM; Sandage et al., 2020). RSM clinical strategies build upon psychodynamic and family systems frameworks and include assessing SR dynamics interacting with three relational development systems (attachment, differentiation, intersubjectivity) and client worldviews with respect to suffering, well-being, and treatment preferences. We will conclude by considering resources to further professional growth in this area of diversity competence/humility.
