Workshop 13 (ticket)
Religious and Spiritual Assessment in Research and Clinical Care

Religious and spiritual beliefs and practices of patients and families are increasingly seen as being helpful for clinicians to know as they develop treatment plans, but this information is not always easy to obtain. This workshop reviews the importance of religious and spiritual assessment in the lives of children, adolescents, and families in the contexts of medical and psychiatric illnesses; explores the history of religious and spiritual assessment; and presents interview questionnaires and other assessment tools that may be adapted to help identify child, adolescent, and family religion and spirituality in clinical and research settings. Participants acquire understanding and skills that are helpful when talking with children and adolescents about religious and spiritual beliefs.
