  1. PSRT 4271: The Family Role in Rehabilitaiton: Week 11 Spiritualityand Recovery

  2. Spirituality and The Family

  3. Terms • Religion • Organized system of beliefs and rituals • Spirituality • Personal quest for divine connection

  4. Religion for Coping: 5 Purposes? (Busesema & Bussema, 2007, citing Pergament, 1997) • Purpose (meaning, hope…) • Self-development (feeling good…) • Resolve (getting through…) • Sharing (community, intimacy…) • Restraint (of emotions, behavior…)

  5. Parallels with PsyR • Psych Rehab  Building Community • Recovery  New Meaning and Life Purpose

  6. Difficulties (Bussema & Bussema 2007) • “Belief systems can complicate recovery” (?) • Isolation from caring religious communities?

  7. Religious sensibilities?... • Hallucinations = visions? • “Altered states of consciousness”? • Out of body experiences? (25% have them)

  8. The System: A One Eyed Giant? (Blanch, 2007) • Focused perspective… • Powerful in science… But… • Limited perspective • Unwise about sacred?...

  9. Rediscovering “New” Facts…(Blanch, 2007) • Religion as a social institution • Increasing cultural and religious diversity • Increasing use of alternative medicine

  10. Challenges • “Real” material world vs. “unreal” nonmaterial world

  11. What About…(Blanch, 2007) • Soul: more important healing vehicle? • Problems: present before conception? • Continuity after death? (Séance?) • Purpose of life: to prepare for death? • All are interconnected? • All healing by God’s grace?...

  12. Dangerous Territory? • Religion: talking to, with, by atheists? • Proselytizing? • Mysticism? • Should anything be “tabo0”?

  13. Approach? • Spiritual information gathering • Acknowledging one’s “explanatory framework” • Include others (clergy?) in consultation • Engage spiritual techniques (e.g., prayer, self-purification)

  14. Pitfalls of the Field…(Blanch, 2007) • “…discomfort about mixing science and religion continues to paralyze the field.” • Religion: really “little more than magical thinking”?… • Western empirical thought: strictly “materialist”, “positivist”?

  15. Providers?... • Studies show: lower levels of religiousness • Psychiatrists, psychologists more than social workers, direct care workers… • Intellectual arrogance? • Wissenschaft [science] uberalles?

  16. The Meaning of Spirituality… • For our clients? • For their families? • For ourselves?

  23. The Conspiracy of Hope We have chosen very difficult work. Sometimes I think we are a little weird for choosing this line of work… But we stick with this work and are faithful to it. Why? Because we are part of a conspiracy of hope and we see in the face of each person with a psychiatric disability a life that is just waiting for good soil in which to grow. We are committed to creating that good soil. Patricia Deegan, Ph.D.

  24. The Origins of Hope 1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. [Romans 5:1-5 (RSV) ]

  25. The Basis of Hope For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; 10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. 13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. [1 Corinthians 13 RSV]
