Although the majority of Americans in some form of God, only a quarter of graduate training programs in psychology offer even one course in religion or spirituality (Schafer et al. 2011). While a vast majority of mental health practitioners believe that these topics should be addressed in the therapeutic context (Vieten et al. 2015), few are properly equipped to do so, particularly when faced with clients whose religious or spiritual values differ from theirs.

Interventions that have roots in spiritual traditions are being increas­ingly employed for treatment of depression and anxiety, as well as for enhancing psychological well-being. Mindfulness-based therapies have demon­strated effectiveness for improving anxiety and mood symptoms (Hofmann, Sawyer, Witt, & Oh, 2010; Toneatto & Nguyen, 2007). Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT; Linehan, 1993) and adaptations of it have shown promise and efficacy for treating borderline disorder, substance abuse, eating disorders, and depression (Robins & Chapman, 2004).

Following are ways you can mindfully maintain a deep connection with your child every day, despite the ongoing commitments of work and school. These are lifelong skills that, when practiced on regularly, will help every child succeed and thrive.

Change starts within, a single spark spiraling outward.  This is the model of transformation espoused by IONS as a map of how shifts in consciousness can significantly impact the way people perceive and shape their realities.

What happens once you arrive at the outer reaches of that spiral?  With IONS Next Gen, we hope to not only raise awareness about the relevance of noetics to social evolutions, but to also host space for those elevating connections to take root and grow.
