This 6-hour course explores the concept of religious and spiritual competency for those who support system involved youth and their caregivers. People tasked wit providing services and support to system involved youth and families often do not get any training or support on religious and spiritual competency, resulting in unskillful, dismissive, or at worst, biased care. Training participants will reflect on their own religious and spiritual experiences and their possible effects on care provision, learn key recommended religious and spiritual competency principles, review faith/cognitive developmental stages, and apply their learning in a roleplay designed to highlight possible religious/spiritual concerns among system involved children, youth and families.
