This Track disseminates the latest knowledge about theory, practice models, research, and curriculum development, and dialogued on current professional controversies regarding spirituality in social work education. Current definitions of spirituality from the social work education literature clarify the distinctions and connections between religion and spirituality, allowing social workers to acknowledge spirituality as a universal aspect of human experiences and development that may or may not be expressed through religious beliefs and institutions. Thus, this Track seeks to honor the diversity of religious and nonreligious paths.
