Spiritual Virtues in the Therapeutic Community (3 CEUs)
This training will define the spiritual virtue approach to the therapeutic community. Participants will learn that a person’s character traits are not developed in isolation, but within and by the communities to which he or she belongs, including family, spiritual connections, school, and other private and public associations. As people grow and mature, their personalities are deeply affected by their values. This training will explain how individual behavior is measured using spiritual values to assess community health. The values of honesty, self-care, commitment, humor, humility, forgiveness, and courage will be explored. Participants will understand that spiritual virtues are not simply a matter of following values and learning to apply them to specific situations, but it is also a matter of trying to determine the kind of people we want our clients and ourselves to be to develop character within our communities and ourselves.
