This two-day conference will explore the integration of spirituality and psychotherapy through unique presentations and workshops led by counselling and spiritual care professionals. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Kenneth Pargament, international researcher, clinician and author of Spiritual Integrated Psychotherapy: Understanding and Addressing the Sacred.
I have been invited to present on the following topic:
Caring for the Muslim Soul: A Survey of the Literature and Prospects for Further Research
Presentation Description: Research related to the spiritual care of the Muslim patient is growing; though it is arguably still in its infancy. In this presentation, I will provide findings from my survey of the literature as it relates to caring for Muslim patients in a healthcare setting. Much of the current literature still focuses on providing general history, beliefs, and demographics for the care provider. However, there is a greater need for more qualitative research. In my presentation I will speak of the findings of my survey of the literature, the need for more qualitative research, and share reflections from my own experience as a Muslim Spiritual Care Provider.
Conference Cost: Students – $75.00; Adults – $150.00
