Working Together to Promote Spiritual and Religious Competency in the Profession

Darla Spence Coffey, PhD; Angelo McClain, PhD; Michael Sheridan, PhD; MSW, and Rick Chamiec-Case, Ph.D, MSW, MAR

Leaders of four major professional social work associations, NASW, CSWE, NACSW, and the Society for Spirituality and Social Work, discuss ways that each of their associations work to equip their members to provide services that are sensitive to and respectful of the religious and spiritual beliefs and values of their clients. This included addressing questions such as: a) Is religiosity and spirituality a natural fit for social workers? If so, what do our associations do to highlight and encourage this fit?; b) What do our organizations do to support the development of knowledge, values, and skills in the area of spirituality?; c) What changes have our organizations seen in the evolution of attention to religion and spirituality in social work, and what key issues appear on the horizon?

The discussion concludes with a discussion about the ways these four associations could work together more fully to support spiritual and religious humility, sensitivity, and competency in the social work profession.
