Organiser: Aust College of Social Work

This webinar explores spirituality in social work practice. Amidst the loud voices of dominant discourses for practice – EBP, practice standards and agency manuals of policy and procedures, practitioners also attend to the quieter inner voice that guides what we do. We know intuitively that our work is shaped as much by who we are as what we do. This webinar presents some personal ideas about the nature of spirituality, on calling, brokenness and giftedness and invites participants to reflect on their own spirituality in practice. We will work on the concept of ‘staying open’ in our engagement with others.

Learning Objectives: ACSW Presents

The Australian College of Social Work was set up in 2011 within the AASW to recognise and promote advanced social work practice and provide leadership in practice excellence. The College recognises and acknowledges the highest professional standards and qualifications that social workers offer and promotes social work excellence and expertise. Our Foundation Fellows are committed to providing leadership in this first phase of the College and to its goals for Australian social work into the future.
