We are at a critical juncture for reproductive health, rights, and justice in the U.S.  With more than 100 state laws enacted in 2021 to restrict abortion and the U.S. Supreme Court considering further restrictions and possibly overturning Roe v. Wade, access to abortion and the range of reproductive health services are dwindling in much of the country.  

This program will examine the history of reproductive justice to provide a context for today’s wider socio-cultural, policy, and legal conflicts, including racial justice.  Further, the universal adoption of comprehensive sex education will be presented as an intervention to provide youth access to the information necessary to protect their sexual health and advance social change.  Finally, social workers will acquire best practices for being an effective advocate for reproductive health and social justice in their communities.

Rabbis, chaplains, and social workers are often called on to provide spiritual care near life’s end. Whether in response to serious illness, advanced cognitive or physical decline in old age, or unexpected, tragic violence, health care professionals and clergy need to respond compassionately and effectively with families facing spiritual, emotional, and existential crises. Clips from Wurzweiler School of Social Work’s “Spirituality Near the End of Life” Conference in July 2019 include leading clergy, chaplains, and social workers offering their knowledge, skills, and wisdom to assist professionals seeking to better integrate spiritual care into their professional and community work.
