Spirituality And Social Work Practice

Submit a 2- to 4-page paper that answers the following questions:

  1. As Eboni’s social worker, would you include spirituality and religion in your initial assessment? Why or why not?
  2. What strategies can you use to ensure that your personal values will not influence your practice with Eboni?
  3. How would you address the crisis that Eboni is experiencing?

I have attached a copy of the transcript from the initial assessment video of Eboni and the social worker.

Support your Assignment with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.

Program Transcript

LOGAN: My father took me to his church last weekend. The whole time he went on about how God gives us life and how it’s not up for us to decide what’s convenient for us or not. He said abortion’s no different than murder. If I do it, I’ll go to hell. I think the same thing sometimes. But I don’t know. I don’t know what to do.


LOGAN: My father even told his pastor I’m pregnant and asked him to pray for me.

FEMALE SPEAKER: I don’t want to pressure you, but you will have to decide soon.

LOGAN: I know. I’m pretty confused. Even my friends, they all have their own opinion what I should do. One friend even bought me a striped Onesies. It’s real cute. Are you sure you don’t want to tell me what to do? Everyone else is.

FEMALE SPEAKER: I know it’s hard, but in the end it’s really your decision.

LOGAN: Why are all the hard decisions the ones you have to make by yourself?

FEMALE SPEAKER: I understand you’re confused. I know you were hoping to go away to college, maybe get a scholarship. I think the best advice I can give is that it’s good to listen to everyone’s opinions, especially those close to you. But in the end, you have to decide what you wanted to do, rather than what anyone else wants.

LOGAN: Yes, ma’am.

FEMALE SPEAKER: There is one other thing I wanted to mention. We’ve talked about your options, and it’s important to keep an open mind about all of them. But there’s one option we haven’t discussed, adoption. There’s even an open adoption where the birth mother and the adopting family know who each other are and keep in contact. I know it’s a lot to think about.

LOGAN: It sure is.
