Spiritual Competency Training in Mental Health (SCT-MH) is a
multi-disciplinary online program designed to train mental health providers
in basic spiritual and religious competencies. The goal of the program is
to equip providers with greater confidence and competence in helping
clients with religious/spiritual issues.
Who’s Giving the Training? Kenneth I. Pargament, Ph.D., Professor,
Department of Psychology at Bowling Green State University is offering the
training to the network. Dr. Pargament is also the author of the seminal
work, Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy: Understanding and Addressing
What Does the Training Cover? The modules cover a number of key topics:
common stereotypes about religion/spirituality (RS);
the diversity of RS expressions;
why it is important to address RS in treatment;
the importance of the therapist’s own RS attitudes, beliefs, and practices;
how to assess RS;
how to help clients access RS resources, and how to respond to RS problems
that arise in treatment.
What Format is the Training in? The training is on-line and self paced. It
takes six to eight hours to complete, can be done on your own time, and
consists of a number of engaging resources and learning activities.
Who Can Take the Training? Mental health providers (MD, PhD, Masters level)
of all disciplines are welcome to participate. Free CE and CME credits are
available upon completion of the program. You have four weeks to complete
the program after you complete the pre-training assessment.
What’s the Difference Between this and the ATSIP Training currently being
offered by the Institute? Spiritual Competency Training in Mental Health
(SCT-MH) can be a very good introduction for therapists who are considering
in participating in future Advanced Training in Spiritually Integrated
Psychotherapy program offerings from the Institute.
If you are interested in participating, please email Dr. Michelle Pearce at
