‘Spirituality and Holistic Medicine’

September 19, 2009
Times Observer

On Sept. 22, Warren State Hospital will host the presentation "Spirituality and Holistic Medicine" from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Israel Building Auditorium. Many medical professionals find that working with the whole person body, mind, and spirit is the most effective way of providing treatment. Spiritual beliefs factor positively into a person's recovery from illness according to many recent research studies. Thus, to ignore the spiritual component is to ignore a positive resource for care. This program will discuss models of care that include the spiritual dimension in a constructive way. These models respect consumers' choice of religious beliefs and do not impose on the belief or unbelief of the therapist. Presenting will be James Donnelly, MA, Licensed Social Worker with UPMC Center for Integrative Medicine, and Reverend Barbara Rogers, PhD, EdS, Lead Chaplian with Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. This free program open all clinical and research professionals, students, trainees, interested family members and consumers, as well as the public. Three continuing education credits will be offered. For information or to register, contact Melanie Shoobridge, training coordinator, at 726-4318.
