Tending the Soul: A Teaching Module for Increasing Student Sensitivity to the Spiritual Needs of Older Adults
Social work educators and practitioners have long recognized the influence of the realm of the soul and spirituality on an individual's health and well-being. This paper presents a four part teaching module used with students who are learning knowledge, values, and skills when working with diverse populations. The teaching module, â€œTending the Soul,â€ is a new approcah of delivering curriculum content on aging and spirituality so that students may fully understand the importance of spirituality when working with this vulnerable population.
