Ethical codes identify the spiritual dimension as a necessary component of competent
counseling; however, evidence suggests that many counselors lack comprehensive training in
the value of religion in such areas as marriage and family counseling. This workshop will look at
the role of religion and spirituality in Christian marriages and families, and examine some of the
myths and research in the field.
