What Is Spiritual competency?
SCA provides over 30 online courses and dozens of workshops, as well as access to audio-visual resources and articles that build your spiritual and religious competency. Spiritual competencies refer to the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed for understanding and addressing spiritual and religious backgrounds, beliefs, and practices as they relate to mental health.
SCA also co-sponsors live programs that provide skills trainings in mindfulness, self-compassion, and forgiveness practices, as well as other spiritually-based interventions that have an established evidence-base for use in healthcare settings.
These programs are offered by Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Stanford University Center for Compassion & Altruism Research & Education, and other leading mindfulness centers.
