Spirituality and Hospice Social Work, Hardback Book

Spirituality and Hospice Social Work Hardback

Part of the End-of-Life Care: A Series series


Many hospice social workers must address spiritual issues with their clients, but do not feel competent to do so effectively.

This targeted volume draws upon multidisciplinary theory and research to advance a relational model of spiritually sensitive hospice care.

The book will help readers elevate their spiritual competence and foster a relationship with their clients that will enrich the experience for all involved. Spirituality and Hospice Social Work helps practitioners understand various forms of spiritual assessment for use with their clients.

The book teaches practitioners to recognize a client's spiritual needs and resources, as well as signs of spiritual suffering.

It also discusses religious and spiritual practices that clients may use to enhance their spiritual coping.

Spirituality and Hospice Social Work stresses the need for interdisciplinary collaboration with other members of the hospice team, along with the value of maintaining professional ethical standards when addressing spiritual issues.

Throughout, the importance of spiritual sensitivity and its effect upon client well-being is emphasized.
