Spiritual Conversation Guidelines for Community Mental Health and Addiction Professionals
Abstract: These spiritual guidelines support the work of Mental Health and Addiction Professionals (MH&AP) at Vancouver Community Mental Health and Addiction Services. MH&AP are required to engage in spirituality conversations with clients unless clinically contraindicated. This document intends to expand professionals’ knowledge and skill in engaging in their own understanding of spirituality and that of their clients. We acknowledge and honour the fact that MH&AP in the system vary in their understanding of, use of, and comfort with, spirituality.
