Most often, when people are confronted with several life, affected by these life circumstances would have to integrate religion and, beliefs that are abusive of human rights, and endeavour to work with the. 13:48 Jonathan Singer: Holly can you talk to us about what it looks like to integrate religion and spirituality into mental health care, and then what it means for that to improve outcomes, or what the mechanism is, or how that happens? Thus, beliefs as seemingly akin to spirituality pose as an inalienable part of human lives. The relationship between religion and mental health has been debated for centuries. This is one of those topics that's taboo - you don't want to talk about it and so I really struggled as an early clinician to think like well, what do I do in these situations where this is clearly something that's important for my clients but I don't really have the tools.

There are manuals that are coming out that walk through that in terms of how to weave in coping statements that honor the clients faith, or how to weave in faith based images into thought stopping or cognitive restructuring, or, you know, certain types of skills or behaviors that clients are wanting to engage in.

She has also developed other instruments related to this area of practice, including the RSIPAS-Client Attitudes, the Social Workers’ Integration of their Faith – Christian (SWIF-C) Scale, and most recently, the Relevance of Religion/Spirituality to Mental Health to measure clients’ perceived relevance of religion/spirituality and mental health.

But no, it does speak to this idea that you can be a mental health provider, there's a death in your community, and if you don't know what the faith traditions are in your community, what their stances are on, say, suicide, or what the resources are, or who in the community is going to be open to coordinating with you, then that is a huge gap in your professional knowledge base, and so I appreciate you bringing that up. 43:51 Holly Oxhandler: Thank you, thank you for noting that; I appreciate it. In addition, the findings from previous studies examining social workers' integration of clients' RS are compared I appreciate you and all the good work that you are doing with this podcast, with the Association, and with just so many of us.

What would be a question that you would ask that would start to integrate this into social work practice? 32:06 Jonathan Singer: I want to pivot a little bit because I - and I know that you've done a ton of research on all of this and so we could go down the rabbit hole in terms of research studies, but I actually don't want to do that because, you know, I mean, as a researcher, there are some things that I find exciting but I know that not everyone does, and you've actually - because I know your research, I know that you've actually been speaking from your research and so I think that that's great, you know, everybody can read the research, but you're also a podcaster and you are the cohost with Robert Vore with the Christianity and Mental Health podcast.

Well, social work has an uncomfortable relationship with religion and spirituality. This chapter discusses the inclusion of spiritually-focused assessment and helping activities among the strategies social workers use with older adults. French This is one designed to form a privileged intellectual persona — that of the supra-civil deconstructive theorist — cultivated through the hyperbolic problematisation of positive disciplines, in this case jurisprudence. Research is simply the questions we ask and how we're answering them, and so I think that social scholarship is incredibly powerful and I think it's great that you're doing that around this topic of religion and spirituality, and I have to say, I mean, I think that the last few years, really since 2017, there's been this explosion in social workers taking up podcasting and addressing all sorts of issues and unpacking all sorts of topics that previously have not been unpacked, and so I think that's great that you're doing it that around religion and spirituality. Like, how many social workers claim to have sort of a faith tradition or a spiritual practice or something like that? We didn’t talk about the meanings of the prayers, the symbolism of the candles, bread or wine, or anything that could be considered remotely theological. I really appreciate it. In this article, we review research that has found both negative and positive associations between religious involvement and mental health. So, we actually see in NASW's Code of Ethics - I'll say that religion is in there, but we don't see spirituality. But, over time shabbat became a way for our children to get to know their great-grandfather. Like if somebody has sort of a religious awakening or a spiritual moment - like I don't know what to do with that, like my that's not my bag,” but his take was very different. The ritual of celebrating Shabbat had little to do with religion. So, even though social workers don’t have to share a faith tradition with their clients, or have any faith tradition at all, I still have questions about the role of religion and spirituality in social work. A person’s spiritual beliefs may give them hope or confidence for the future. Spirit. Dr. Oxhandler’s research focuses on the ethical and effective integration of clients’ religion, spirituality in mental and behavioral health treatment, and she's received funding from the John Templeton Foundation and Spencer Foundation. It's not as talked about; it just wasn't discussed as much. Finally, implications for education and practice are discussed. She was, however, primarily the inspiration of the Russian philosopher-poet, Vladimir Solov’ev (1853-1900), who created of her the cornerstone for both his metaphysical and aesthetic systems. But honestly, what I have loved so much about it is that I really do see how it aligns with some of my work with advocacy by disseminating research and making it accessible in a way that anyone can understand because we know that there are struggles with accessing academic journal articles, being able to understand them, and all these things, but I really do love how this podcast ends up being a space for some of that research to be translated and made applicable for faith leaders, mental health care providers, and clients or those who love someone with a mental illness. But, you made a great point before that yes, what we believe in could be very different from our clients, or, you know, we also have to be -  so let me first say that yes, we could have one social worker who identifies as one faith tradition and the client identifies with a different one and it could be very different, but I also want to note that there could be ways in which they are very similar. So, I would say start with that, and then the second piece, I would really say would be, I would ask social workers to carve out some time to think through and pay attention to the role of religion and spirituality in your life in whatever way it looks like. For the present investigation, an—in spirituality research unorthodox —factor analytic method was chosen: principal axis analysis with oblique rotation.

There are studies that are coming out in terms of how to integrate this ethically and very carefully and kind of how to navigate this, and, you know, when to discern when to refer out. Holly K.

Social workers are the most represented group among personnel providing And I know that in my work with suicide and schools, that particularly when we talk about how school staff members can help to negotiate the processing of grief and loss after someone dies by suicide, the conversation inevitably and rightly so includes faith communities because somebody once told me, I don't know if this is true, but, you know, that there's this kind of hypothesis that faith started because of people trying to explain and understand death, right?

The second largest predictor is whether or not they receive training and that includes whether or not they had taken a course on this or continuing education. So, the biopsychosocial spiritual assessment - so it says spiritual, but you made this really clear distinction in the beginning between religion and spirituality, and so is there an expectation from the Council on Social Work Education or NASW that we're focusing on the spiritual but not the religious? 39:53 Holly Oxhandler: I think first I would ask social workers to not be afraid of this topic. About, you know, you mentioned the first question, but like actually talking about it or at what point do you refer out or how do you just any of that? with those of other helping professions. But it's just been, I mean, it's really just been a delight to get to be on it and to connect with so many folks who are doing such good work. And I think that's an okay start, but I have kind of been a little bit more vocal about pushing back against that because what we know is that a lot of folks may say, well I, you know, I grew up Catholic, nothing's really changed, like, but I don't practice that, right and so, you know, that doesn't give us a lot of information about that person’s spirituality or their faith so a better question might be to ask, “Is your faith or your spirituality important to you, and does it connect with the work that we will be doing together?” or “How does it connect with the work that we're going to be doing together?” or “Do you want to talk about it as we embark on the work that we're going to be doing together?”, 17:02 Jonathan Singer: Those are so powerful because immediately my gut is, well, I'm not sure if I would be prepared to talk about, like, if they're like, “Yes, I absolutely do. is void of formalities, dogmas and liturgies.

Spanish Issues of religion, spirituality and social work have, until very recently, received relatively little attention from British social work educators and at times appear to be actively avoided by most of the profession (Crompton, 1996; Furness, 2003; Gilligan, 2003; Furman et al., 2004). 16:02 Holly Oxhandler: Yeah, that’s good. Some clients are expressing a desire for their health and mental health practitioners to initiate discussion of their religious I love the ways in which your colleague kind of started to unpack that and thinking about how this looks in clients’ lives and truthfully, I'm originally from upstate New York, too and so that northern, like I understand that northern culture. This book is the first to deal with social work and religion so comprehensively and will therefore be essential reading not only for social work students, but also for practitioners in a range of areas, social work academics and researchers in the UK and beyond. I suspect that if we can get a conversation and collaboration going between schools of social work and schools of religion/theology there would be a lot to learn on both sides. Few studies have assessed such an integration; those that are available focus 07:02 Holly Oxhandler: I like to start by thinking about their role in our clients’ lives because, of course, as social workers, you know, our first priority is our clients’ well-being and paying attention to the things that are important to them: their culture, their experiences, the ways of coping with difficult situations, and religion and spirituality can absolutely be woven into those things.

But, I was wondering if you could talk about how you use this podcast to bring together mental health professionals and religious leaders, how you see the CXMH podcast as a resource for social workers, and even if there have been any conversations that you've had that have really sort of stuck in your mind that you've had in them. 1989 (Canda, 2005; Gray, 2008; Mosher, 2010). But mostly, I mean, my role, as you mentioned at the beginning, is an Associate Dean for Research and so much of my heartbeat behind this role is how do we get the good, good work that faculty are doing and the research that folks are doing and how do we get it out to the people who really could use this and benefit from it and learn from it rather than keeping it locked away.

Spirituality was an imperative component in the beginnings of the social work profession in America, a discipline that originated out of a response from Christians and Jews addressing the needs of the poor (Canda & Furman, 1999). transcendental phenomenology.

Curriculum is often assumed to be a synonym of Education and the spiritual is equated with content. 18:26 Jonathan Singer: So, in terms of this integration, okay, so there's the lack of graduate level education or continuing education in this area, and one of the things that we always say is that, you know, as a social worker, you don't have to have experienced something to be helpful, right, to be effective at helping somebody achieve some goals around a topic. I think what we're seeing in the research and in the data now is that we're at a point that not talking about it is actually unethical because of what you said, how so many individuals do see that this is an important area of their lives. We have data showing that clients prefer to talk about it and for the mental health care provider or the social worker to be the one to open that door and at least initiate with the question of, “Is this something that's important to you, and does it relate to the work that we're going to be doing together?” and we have data coming out that's showing that when you ethically integrate clients’ faith into their mental health care, it improves outcomes, so avoiding it or not talking about it is actually a way that can really do some disservice to our clients, I think.
