School Counseling Programs as Spiritual and Religious Safe Zones
Stloukal, Merit E.; Wickman, Scott A.
Counseling and Values, v55 n2 p157-170 Apr 2011
The authors present a model for creating spiritual and religious safe zones in school counseling programs that implements the Association for Spiritual, Ethical and Religious Values in Counseling's (ASERVIC; 2009) "Competencies for Addressing Spiritual and Religious Issues in Counseling" in a school setting. The authors frame the model within the context of issues related to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and posit that students' ability to discuss and explore spiritual and religious issues promotes their personal and social-emotional development.
