The Society for Spirituality and Social Work is a network of social workers and other helping professionals dedicated to spiritually sensitive practice and education. Founded in 1990, its purpose is to create connections and mutual support among social work scholars, practitioners, and students of diverse religious and nonreligious spiritual perspectives in order to encourage development of innovative approaches to spiritually sensitive social work practice, education, and research. Toward that end the Society sponsors and supports national and international conferences, curriculum exchanges, and workshops and presentations. Membership benefits include discounts for Society conferences and events, and a subscription to the Journal of Religion & Spirituality in Social Work: Social Thought, published quarterly by Taylor & Francis. The Society is based in the United States of America but encourages membrship and collaboration with social workers throughout the world. At this point in time, activities are totally supported by member dues and volunteer labor.
