Conference Date: March 20th-21st, 2020

This refereed conference theme is Mental Health and Spirituality: Contemporary Issues and Practical Implications for Practitioners and Researchers. This conference invites presenters to demonstrate the contemporary challenges in the research and integration of spirituality in practice. These workshop presentations are expected to present perspectives from theory and research with reference to the use of spirituality in the field of mental health, with an emphasis on practical tools that can be utilized with clients. We invite submissions from all areas in the field of mental health. Workshop presenters are also asked to prepare a scholarly paper, written in a style that is accessible for researchers, clinicians, students, and professionals working in the field of mental health, psychotherapy, psychology, spiritual care, social work, healthcare, and psychiatry. It is the organizers hope to combine the papers into an edited book.
