Topics in Counselling: Counselling and Spirituality

This course will examine the relationship between counselling and spirituality. A framework for the spiritually oriented counsellor will be offered to explore topics such as forgiveness, guilt, evil, suffering, death, various concepts of a higher power, transcendence, and mystical experience. Through lectures, film, dialogue, journaling, and research we will explore meaning and transcendence, the difference between religion and spirituality and the impact an openness to spirituality has on the therapeutic alliance.
