Integration versus Segregation: Applications of the Spiritual Competencies in Counselor Education Programs
Hagedorn, W. Bryce; Gutierrez, Daniel
Counseling and Values, v54 n1 p32-47 Oct 2009
This article explores how educators can integrate the 9 Spiritual Competencies developed by the Association for Spiritual, Ethical and Religious Values in Counseling (M. T. Burke, 1998; G. Miller , 1999) into the counselor education curriculum. Rather than relegating this content to courses in which one might expect discussions of spirituality, the authors advocate for an infused approach. Input was sought from counselor educators and supervisors from around the nation with expertise in spirituality in counseling. These experts provided useful exercises, activities, and assignments that they have successfully used to integrate religious and/or spiritual discussions into the curriculum.
