    Spirituality and social work have been historically and philosophically connected since the beginning of social work. The original social work programs were religion or spirituality-based, like churches or sinagogues. In more recent times there is a debate on the intertwining of spirituality and social work. No matter where one stands on this issue, one must acknowledge that the knowledge of religions is important to social work so that as social workers we do not discriminate or offend our clients of different religions or spiritual beliefs.

    • Secondary prevention is an attempt of not allowing social or personal issues to spread and grow. An example of this is AA or rehab which treats addicts and aids them in the getting sober stage and continues to provide support in the sobriety stage.
    • Tertiary prevention is helping people cope of get a handle on social or personal issues that are out of their control, like the loss of a limb or a loved one. An example of this would be group counseling particularly in VA hospitals helping SM, especially war veterans, cope with PTSD, loss of limb or limbs, or dealing with pressures of returning home after being away.
