Dr. Ken Pargament - Workshop/Presentation for Clergy and Faith Leaders
This workshop/presentation will focus on both spiritual problems and spiritual solutions. In the first, presentation, we will introduce the growing body of study on spiritual struggles and their critical implications for physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. We will discuss how to recognize signs of spiritual struggles and how to respond to them in the context of pastoral care. In the second presentation, we will talk about the varieties of spiritual resources that help people achieve resilience and growth in the midst of trauma and transition. We will consider ways to help people identify and tap more fully into their spiritual resources. The presentations will make use of power point, clinical stories, empirical research findings, and discussion.
