Social Work and Spirituality
- Ian Mathews - Lincoln University
Social Work & Social Policy (General)
This book is written in such a way that it does not feel like you are reading a text book. Students benefit from the personal examples. I have had positive feedback from all students in my class that they have been engaged in this book, enjoy reading it, and gain much from the information provided.
Great introductory text for undergraduate students.
A very helpful introduction to an often neglected aspect of social work practice, which is of key importance to the lives of many service users. This book explores complex and sensitive issues in a clear and accessible way and provides useful activities for the application of ideas and space for further reflcetion, In my view this is a helpful text for students and NQSW.
I was really interested in this book as it provided a very wide introduction to the connection between spirituality and social work.
I found the chapter on children particularly useful as I have not found much social work study on childrens spirituality and I was excited to see this included in the text.
An excellent introduction to the issues, which I would like to see given a greater level of prominence and exploration within social work.
Much needed book in an often neglected area,
Spirituality is fundamental to many people's lives, but social work has often failed to recognise its importance. This book addresses complex and sensitive issues and meets a real need for an accessible text for students.
