Integrating Religion and Spirituality into Counselor Education: Barriers and Strategies
Adams, Christopher M.; Puig, Ana; Baggs, Adrienne; Wolf, Cheryl Pence
Counselor Education and Supervision, v54 n1 p44-56 Mar 2015
Despite a professionally recognized need for training in religion/spirituality, literature indicates that religious and spirituality issues continue to be inconsistently addressed in counselor education. Ten experts were asked to identify potential barriers to integrating religion and spirituality into counselor education and indicate strategies for overcoming these obstacles. Barriers included a lack of information and a lack of personal interest or relevance, and strategies included continuing education, heightened awareness of self and others, and curriculum-specific recommendations. Implications for counselor training and recommendations for future research are discussed.
