Religion and Spirituality as a Determinant of Mental Health: Assessment and Integration into Clinical Practice
Overview

The course will start by presenting the evidence and mechanisms for the impact of R/S on mental health that is evidence-based, which can contribute to ethically sound bio-psycho-socio-spiritual patient-centered care. Patients’ religious/spiritual convictions, practices and communities can be important resources in their recovery. But religiously reinforced stigma, and spiritual concerns such as being punished or abandoned by God can put them at greater risk. Using case examples, participants will explore practical and ethical aspects of the psychiatrist’s role in addressing these positive and negative influences of R/S during the process of psychiatric assessment, formulation, and treatment.
