TRACKS FOR THE CONFERENCE:
Faith in Counseling:
How do we incorporate faith into the clinical setting in an ethical way? This will include talks surrounding making faith practices a part of treatment, appropriate evaluation of one's faith and how it influences their mental health, and what are the ethical implications of making faith a part of treatment.
Faith in Business:
How do you start and grow a faith-based practice? How do you market and network with Christian organizations? This track is all about making faith a part of the business side of your practice. Other possible topics are setting your fees, establishing values, writing copy surrounding your faith-based practice, etc.
Faith in Action:
How do we make faith an action in our lives and in our clinical work? This track covers the experiential side of the conference. We will have professionally led activities such as yoga on the beach, meditation, prayer, and moments of solitude.
