Reconnecting to spirit, God, faith or a higher power is central to many people’s post-traumatic growth experience. While crucial, spirituality is sometimes difficult to define and even more challenging for helpers to discuss in a way that promotes healing. Psychologist Olga Vera joins Matt, Curt, and Jerry to address this important and exciting topic helping all of us integrate spiritual discussion into our work of helping people heal and thrive.
- What role have you seen spirituality play in the lives of those you serve?
- How have you integrated spiritual discussions into your work in the past?
- Could you adjust programming in a way that addresses the spiritual health of those you serve?
