On request training
Opportunity descriptionWhere does spirituality fit into mental health work? What do we understand this enigmatic word to mean?
What makes us feel whole, real and authentic? What makes you feel connected to others? What gives your life meaning and purpose? What gives you hope? Our answers to these questions point to what matters most in our life and what protects us. Our inner strength and wisdom can be invaluable to our recovery and survival in times of distress, illness or crisis.
Every experience of distress and illness is unique. Only the one who experiences it knows what it really feels like, and they are the only one who intuitively knows the source of their own inner strength. In mental health care, it is vital that each person is given the opportunity to talk about that source of strength and for workers to acknowledge it as deeply important in planning ways to support them.
Most mental health clinicians struggle in this domain of a person’s holistic care through a lack of confidence and training in this area. Spiritual Health Victoria offers training by request and tailored to organisational need.
