Open to All!-10.5 Continuing Ed Credits Available
Facilitator: Emma Bragdon, PhD
This course includes 5 pre-recorded online webinars you can view at your convenience as well as 2 live, scheduled online meetups with Emma Bragdon, PhD for Q&A, personal sharing, and discussion. All Welcome.
Teachings are designed for healthcare professionals but the general public is welcome to join. You will understand and learn from an expert about the basics of how to manage psycho-spiritual, transformative crises within yourself, and with ones you care for. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
Health care providers will learn about the theory that distinguishes spiritual emergency (a psycho-spiritual crisis) from distinct mental illnesses and thus expand their ability to make accurate diagnoses and successful treatment plans. Methods for working with people in spiritual emergency (treatment) will be covered, articulating best practices for optimal outcomes. Course includes references to recent research in peer-reviewed journals to provide evidence base for course content as well as books for further exploration. Continuing Education credit is available for healthcare providers who successfully complete a quiz at the end of the home-study portion (see details below).
Participants may wish to follow this course with a live, on location 2-day workshop, called the Spiritual Emergence Coach Practicum. It builds practical skills in optimal methods for successfully assisting a person to a positive outcome of spiritual emergency. Completion of the Practicum qualifies a participant to become certified as a “Spiritual Emergence Coach®”.
At the end of the program participants will be better able to:
- List 12 different ways a psycho-spiritual crisis may manifest
- Describe 9 catalysts of spiritual emergency
- Compare ways to recognize a spiritual emergency vis a vis distinct mental disorders
- Design a plan for best care for someone in spiritual emergency
- Explain the positive, transformative outcomes of spiritual emergency that are possible when the crisis is managed appropriately
