Course Description

This innovative, engaging and highly effective online training teaches participants to enjoy a natural state of heart-mind alignment. Combining psychological theory and easy-to-learn experiential components, this ground-breaking two-part program introduces participants to a unique heart based and holistic approach to easily experiencing enhanced feelings of peace, calm, joy and gratitude – those qualities the literature refers to as spiritual well-being.

Spirituality is an ingrained aspect of our humanity. Heartfelt sincerity, gratitude, joy, connection, integrity, authenticity, choosing wisely, and our ability to forgive are all linked to the quality of human experience. When human service providers embody these spiritual qualities, not only do clients feel much safer, clearly heard and personally honored, but provider burnout and compassion fatigue are significantly diminished. An analysis of over 1,000 research studies demonstrated that therapeutic alliance is one of the best and strongest predictors of positive outcome. Understanding and incorporating the spiritual aspect of Whole-Person Care has been greatly undervalued even though the major National Health Care Accreditation Boards such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO), Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), and the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), and the World Health Organization (WHO) all emphasize the importance of incorporating the spiritual dimension of life.

DETAILS

Level 1 – Understanding the Spiritual Dimension of Whole-Person Care

Understanding the Spiritual Dimension of Whole-Person Care provides unique and paradigm challenging content that explores the dynamics of spirituality in Whole-Person Care. Other topics covered include paradigm shifts in the field of behavioral health, research and the spiritual dimension, the role of the heart, psychophysiology of the heart connection, heart-mind alignment, therapeutic alliance and positive outcomes, and creating a safe space for transformational change. Level 1 is designed to provide a theoretical framework to build the foundation for the experiential component of Level 2: Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment.

Understanding the Spiritual Dimension of Whole Person Care is divided into the following five modules:

  1. Paradigm Shifts in Behavioral Health and Modern Day Practice
  2. Research and the Spiritual Dimension of Whole-Person Care.
  3. The Role of the Heart in the Spiritual Dimension of Whole-Person Care.
  4. The Psychophysiology of the Heart Connection
  5. Heart Based Care and the Spiritual Dimension

  • Identify paradigm shifts in the behavioral health and modern day practice.
  • Explain research related to spirituality, spiritual characteristics and positive outcomes.
  • Define the role of the heart in the spiritual dimension of Whole-Person Care.
  • Explain the psychophysiology of the heart-mind connection.

Level 2 – Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment

Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment introduces a sequential experience-based process which teaches participants how to effortlessly enjoy the natural state of heart-mind alignment. Learning to naturally experience true heart feelings, such as peace, calm, joy and gratitude, in daily life can help prevent burnout and compassion fatigue, enhance therapeutic alliance and personal fulfillment, and improve the quality of interpersonal relationships and job satisfaction.

Gratitude has been shown to uniquely predict life satisfaction and well-being. Participants will experience the transformative benefits of Whole-person caring and the enhancement of peace, calm, joy, and gratitude that result from the natural state of heart-mind alignment.

Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment is divided into the following five modules:

  1. Relaxation and Grounding
  2. Building the Heart Foundation
  3. Enhancing the Experience of True Heart Feelings
  4. Cultivating Gratitude
  5. Experiencing Heart Based Care

Objectives for Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment:

  • Enhance the experience of relaxation through subjective self-reports of participants
  • Utilize Heart Based Therapeutics™ to subjectively experience the qualities of spiritual well-being as identified in the research literature.
  • Learn to easily and naturally shift into positive heartfelt feeling in order to enhance the experience of peace, calm and joy.
  • Learn to enhance the experience of gratitude as demonstrated by self-reports of participants.
  • Utilize Heart Based Therapeutics™ to improve therapeutic effectiveness demonstrated by the natural state of heart based care.

GROUND-BREAKING PROFESSIONAL TRAINING

Whole-person caring is a grounded state of being that the practitioner experiences – it is not a technique. When we experience deeper heart-mind alignment and are able to be guided by innate heart wisdom, whole-person caring becomes a natural expression. This one-of-a-kind workshop creates the foundation for effectively integrating the spiritual dimension into Whole- Person Care.

Note: In order to take Enhancing Heart-Mind Alignment, you must first have completed Understanding the Spiritual Dimension of Whole Person Care. Level 2 can be taken online or through a live training lab class. Additionally, completion of Level 2 is a prerequisite for participating in advanced courses in this continuing series as well as Heart Based Institute’s training to become a Certified Heart Based Support Specialist.
