HONORING ANGELS IN MY PATH: Spiritually-Sensitive Group Work with Persons Who Are Incarcerated

  • Michael J. Sheridan Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Virginia Commonwealth University


This narrative tells the story of how I came to work with a group of men who are incarcerated on a variety of life issues related to the process of recovery. This experience has been a spiritual journey for me, as well an opportunity to be professionally involved with spiritually-sensitive social work practice. Glimpses of the group's evolving sense of purpose and connection are provided to illustrate how spirituality can be interwoven with the process of professional helping. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
