Spiritual identity and mindfulness in social work practice: Building holistic relationships

Spiritual identity is an important aspect of life for many individuals yet is often ignored in professional practice with service users. This presentation will discuss the current spiritual and religious climate including definitions, ethical guidelines for hosting spiritual conversations, and mindfulness and spiritual care in the midst of life challenges. Workshop participants will be invited to explore their own understanding of these areas through meditation and interactive engagement.
