Abstract

This is the story of my origins in existentialist thought and my struggles to link it with the social work profession. I describe how my emerging spiritual understanding found affirmation in existentialist writings and increasing openness in the profession to spirituality. This process enabled me to apply the existentialist perspective in "use of myself" as a social work educator and direct practitioner. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
