Summer Scholarship Research Grant Presentation
"Faithful Engagement: The Role of Religion and Spirituality in Social Policy Practice"

1:00 p.m., Hastings Center for Academics, Room 123
All are welcome to attend
Lori Sousa is Assistant Professor of Social Work at Roberts Wesleyan College. She was the 2014 recipient of the Summer Scholarship Research Grant. This presentation is based on her research. People of faith have been a vital part of the major social movements in the history of our nation. Yet, despite the obvious impact that religion has on the formation of deep-seated values and worldviews, there is a lack of significant research and theoretical models available to examine the role of religion and spirituality in social policy practice. Utilizing social science theory, this lecture discusses the process by which policy practitioners utilize religious and spiritual beliefs, values, practices, and experiences to inform social policy practice.
