American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

Spiritual counselors need to understand more than just their particular spirituality but also need some knowledge in psychology.  Without it, things that are clearly physical can be seen as metaphysical.

Spiritual directors or counselors can help their clients alot just with basic psyhological information about a variey of things ranging from grief to pathologies.  Of course, with this knowledge in psychology, they know when to refer a client to a clinical psychologist or licensed professional.

Spiritual counseling is not a licensed position but a certified one.  This means the state does not regulate it.  This does not mean anyone should just counsel.  Having a knowledge base in psychology is important and critical.

If you are interested in learning more about spiritual counseling, then please review the program.  After taking the core courses in the spiritual counseling program, qualified professionals are eligible for certification.  After three years, the certification is renewed.

In the meantime, enjoy the blog and articles and if you have any questions, please let us know
