UT School of Social Work
Many clients receiving social work services identify as religious, spiritual, or both. A clearer understanding of clients’ religious/spiritual understandings, commitments, and practices enables the practitioner offer more appropriate interventions and provide more relevant support. This webinar provides information related to current religious demographics in the U.S., to incorporating religion/spirituality in the person-in-environment perspective, and especially to assessing clients’ religious/spiritual preferences and commitments using both implicit and explicit assessment approaches. Attention is given to matters of diversity, cultural competence, and bias, and to implications for practice.
Participants will be able to:
• Gain knowledge and resources related to religious demographics in the U.S.
• Define and distinguish between spirituality and religion
• Acquire a deeper understanding of and facility with social work assessment approaches that involve a client’s religious/spiritual orientations, domains, and resources
• Consider implications for social work practice
