Spirituality and Social Work Practice
Being culturally sensitive by respecting your clients’ spirituality and religious traditions, in general, is an important professional competence (Furness & Gilligan, 2010). Applying your spiritual awareness to a specific client case, however, may require even greater skill. In this assignment, you consider how you might address a client’s crisis that includes a spiritual or religious component.
To prepare for this Assignment, review this week’s media about Eboni Logan’s visit with her school social worker.
Submit by TOMORROW 8PM NEW YORK TIME 2- to 4-page paper that answers the following questions:
- As Eboni’s social worker, would you include spirituality and religion in your initial assessment? Why or why not?
- What strategies can you use to ensure that your personal values will not influence your practice with Eboni?
- How would you address the crisis that Eboni is experiencing?
