NASW-Michigan will be hosting our first statewide social work student twitter chat to unpack the often hidden topic of faith/spirituality and social work practice. Over the past few decades, the role of religion and spirituality in health and mental health clients’ lives has caught the attention of a variety of helping professionals, including social workers. Research indicates that not only does the inclusion of religion and spirituality have the potential to enhance health and mental health outcomes, but clients prefer such integration in treatment. To this end, and considering that social workers constitute 45 percent of clinically trained helping professionals, it is important for the social work profession to clearly understand what supports or hinders practitioners from considering this sensitive area of clients’ lives. The chat aims to give students to opportunity to share their experiences in their social work programs, as well as to share resources, research, and ethical scenarios.


The twitter chat coincides with NASW-Michigan Faith and Social Work Practice training initiative that is running through March.  To participate in the twitter chat use #Faith&SW and tag @naswmi on March 14.
