The NIH Religion, Spirituality and Health Scientific Interest Group (RSH-SIG) will present its next webinar on Tuesday, July 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. ET. Dr. Jesse Fox, associate professor and chair, Stetson University, will discuss “Developing Research to Train Mental Health Providers in Spiritual and Religious Competencies.”

Research in spirituality, religion and mental health has exploded in the past 20 years. This talk will discuss the concept called “spiritual and religious competence,” which was first articulated by the Association of Spiritual, Ethical and Religious Values in Counseling (a sub-division of the American Counseling Association) and was an outgrowth of the multicultural counseling movement that took root in the 1990s. 

The webinar will be held via Zoom ( and is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. The webinar will be recorded and available later on the RSH-SIG website: Individuals needing sign language interpretation should email requests to at least five business days before the event. Live captioning will be provided.
