Embracing a Client's Spirituality...

is about understanding the client in a wholistic way

Research indicates that graduates identify spirituality as an essential component of practice and that they often feel ill-prepared and ill-equipped to address spiritual issues upon completion of their education. Our programming has been specifically design to fill this gap to expand empathy, respect, and appreciation for the client experience.

Is this course for you?

  • Looking for a way to weave spirituality into a world of various religious backgrounds?

  • Are you responsible for the Spiritual Quadrant that your education falls short?
