Ann M. Callahan

"Spirituality frequently becomes more salient as clients approach death. Spiritual needs, for instance, often become more acute. Yet relatively little guidance exists on this critical topic. This important new text addresses this gap in the literature and equips social work practitioners and other hospice workers to navigate the often difficult process of providing spiritual care in hospice settings. Indeed, anyone involved in end-of-life care will likely benefit from this significant contribution."-David R. Hodge, Arizona State University

Spirituality and Hospice Social Work helps practitioners understand various forms of spiritual assessment for use with their clients. This targeted volume draws upon multidisciplinary theory and research to advance a relational model of spiritually sensitive hospice care. 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. Read more ...
