The Spirituality Committee meets on the 4th Monday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Chapter office, located at 50 Broadway, Suite 1001, New York, NY 10004.


The Spirituality committee is a community of social workers who are passionate about driving forward the inclusion of spirituality in our field. Members recognize that a person’s spirituality, however defined, can often be an essential factor in the healing process. Unfortunately, many social workers are unaware of the impact of spirituality and others may struggle with how to discuss or approach it.


During our monthly meetings, members will collaborate to plan different CEH events, classes, and workshops designed to educate social workers on spiritually related topics relevant to social work. The committee also is interested in building scholarship funds for social workers interested in conducting research on the topic.


Spirituality is defined in a variety of ways and its inclusion in the healing process takes many forms. Our committee welcomes this diversity and strives to be inclusive. Members are encouraged to suggest educational activities that span the spectrum of spirituality. Members will also have the opportunity to shape the committee to support personal healing and be a place of self-care.

She then started her doctoral journey, also at Fordham University, to join the effort aimed to strengthen the incorporation of spirituality within social work. As a masters’ student, Jade served as President of the Spirituality and Social Work student group. She has co-authored a book on women’s spiritual development, soon to be published by Oxford University Press, and will complete her dissertation on a study of the same theme.
