Clinical Coordinator of the Couples & Family Therapy Program Publishes Chapter on “Spirituality and Religion”

January 26, 2017

Dr. Becky Cobb, Clinical Coordinator of the Couples & Family Therapy Program and Assistant Clinical Professor at the School of Theology and Ministry published a chapter on “Spirituality and Religion” in Murphy and Hecker’s text on “Ethics and Professional Issues in Couple and Family Therapy.”

Program Director Dr. Eppler has indicated that students will use this new edition in the Identity and Ethics class next year since it is one of the leading textbooks on ethics in the field of couples and family therapy.

Becky notes:

“It was an honor to represent the work that we do by writing this chapter. While other texts typically refer to spirituality and religion as a component of cultural competence and/or when discussing values conflicts, this text is unique because it devotes an entire chapter to spirituality and religion. This topic is central to the work that we do in the School of Theology and Ministry’s Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy, an Interfaith, Spiritually-Integrated Program.”
