Spiritual Assessment in Social Work and Mental Health Practice
Spirituality often plays a critical role in health and wellness, but the process through which practitioners can identify and use clients' spiritual strengths has not been explored in any detail. To address this gap, this practice-oriented text equips helping professionals with the tools needed to administer spiritual assessments in ethically and professionally. David Hodge outlines a number of approaches to assessment, including an implicit approach to evaluate "secular" forms of spirituality. Case examples illustrate the implementation of these approaches in different clinical settings with diverse groups.
