Welcome to the CSSSW’s updated website; it is designed to be inviting, informative, engaging and interactive. The website will remain a ‘work in progress’ as we receive feedback on the design and as discussion groups and blog posts are set up on important and current issues. Comments on, and suggestions for, the new website can be made directly to CSSSW via the Discussion section of the website. All information published on the old website has been transferred over.
With regret he 10th North American Conference on Spirituality and Social Work has been cancelled. There were too few submissions and the resulting financial risks too great to proceed with confidence. The Conference was scheduled from June 23-25, 2016 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada). A local professional education event may take its place - we will post information as it becomes available. The CSSSW has been advised that the Society for Spirituality and Social Work (USA) with the support of a Texas University is planning a 2017 conference. Info will be posted when available.
