We are spiritual beings having a human experience - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The combination of social work and spirituality is often the key combination to a successful healing process. With all of the technology available to us these days, it seems to have made people more concerned with themselves, and less concerned to the needs of others. The right human services software can help you not only do your job better, but in so doing, actually create more time to spend on the spiritual side of your work.
When bad things happen to people, tapping into their spirituality, having them reach for spiritual strength in others can be strong medicine. Helping them discover that inner strength they feel they have somehow lost fosters a ”we are all spiritual beings; we are all in this together.” Helping them cope and get in touch with that inner sense of being takes time, and again, the right human services software will give you that time.
Practice what you preach
for the good of you and your clients
While helping others it’s important to keep your own spirit strong. After all, helping others who are experiencing pain, especially if you are helping a number of people at once, can have a draining affect on you personally. Maintain positive self-care and good mental health for yourself.
Begin your day with a spiritual practice of your own. Reconnect with who you are and why you do what you do. Staying peaceful, positive and calm inside is essential for your well-being. As you fulfill your chosen role as the nurturer of others, it’s extremely important to always take time for yourself to recharge, reenergize, and stay centered.
Because of experience, client feedback and more scientific studies supporting mind-body connection, spirituality continues to become ever more prominent in social work practice. Human services software allows you to both track and review a person’s progress physically, mentally and spiritually. And in the process, give you more time practicing your faith and creating human connections.
