10.30am - 12.00pm
In partnership with Spiritual Health Association (SHA), Victorian Transcultural Mental Health (VTMH) is pleased to offer more opportunities for mental health practitioners to identify and explore challenges when spirituality or religion comes up during encounters with consumers.
While person-centred care models include these domains, workers often feel ill-equipped to support people in these aspects of their lives. This reflective peer group allows practitioners to deepen their understanding of how to have conversations with mental health consumers about their diverse spiritual beliefs.
Topic: ‘Understanding spiritual trauma through spiritual care: Where to begin?’
Sessions in this series are for practitioners working in publicly funded mental health programs across Victoria. This includes staff based in clinical mental health services, community-managed services, as well as people working within mental health programs in community health and human social services. Unfortunately, these discussions are not open to students on clinical placement.
