I want religion to be integrated into healing and therapy for those that want it to be a part of their lives. Separating the guilt and shame from religion can make it a beneficial outlet for those that feel that closely to it. Overall it should be about understanding and this research paper has made me realize that if I am going to work in this field I need to educate myself a lot more on the different kinds of religions and the science behind psychosis and religion because it seems that they are deeply intertwined. From all that I experienced at Inter Community I do not think that it is coincidence that almost all of the clients were brought up with very strict religious backgrounds and have semi unhealthy relationships with religion. As professionals in the field of social services and human services it is our jobs to understand and know for the benefit of those we will serve.
