The role of religion and spirituality in health and mental health clients’ lives has caught the attention of a variety of helping professionals, including social workers. Research indicates that not only does the inclusion of religion and spirituality have the potential to enhance health and mental health outcomes, but clients prefer such integration in treatment. To this end, and considering that social workers constitute 45 percent of clinically trained helping professionals, it is important for the social work profession to clearly understand what supports or hinders practitioners from considering this sensitive area of clients’ lives.

This conference aims to give social workers a space to learn, discuss, and explore how issues of faith impact our practice.

Regarding teaching, Professor Blaylock says, “My classroom philosophy centers on experiential learning and information retention. Experiential learning cultivates an environment of engaged learning, rather than a passive learning environment as traditionally implied in higher education. I deliver course content in a way that provides students with a personal learning experience, resulting in students retaining and recalling information more effectively. Witnessing students apply the concepts from the classroom into their practicum is rewarding.” Outside of the classroom, her accomplishments include: Winner of the 2019 Innovation in Online Teaching Award; lecturer at the 2019 Marketplace Leadership Institute (MLI) in Singapore, presenting on Emotional Intelligence and Cultural Sensitivity in the Marketplace and Ministry; annual presenter at the NASW Oklahoma State Conference with presentations focused on the ethical use of social media in social work, as well as the non-traditional role of Police Social Work; served as the NASW Tulsa Branch President from 2013 to 2014; current member of the NASW Oklahoma.
