Special Issue on Ecospirituality

This special issue comes from research presented at the Tenth North American Conference on Spirituality and Social Work, The Spiritual in Social Work: Towards Ecospirituality, Holistic, and Sustainable Social Work Practice, held June 21-24, 2023The conference explored social work’s role and the importance of spirituality in the increasing climate crisis and associated mental health emergency. Organized by the Canadian Society for Social Work and Spirituality (CSSSW), with the support of Dalhousie University, the University of Calgary, and the American Society for Social Work and Spirituality (SSSW), this interprofessional conference was a blended in-person and virtual event with face-to-face and real time online presentations. The overarching aim was to invite researchers, practitioners, educators, students, and visionaries from social work and other disciplines to explore the concept, practice, and/or consciousness of ‘ecospirituality’ and related holistic practices. Presenters from this conference are invited to submit manscripts from their presentations for consideration.
