Abstract Recent studies involving practitioners, field instructors, and social work educators have acknowledged the importance of religious and spiritual issues when dealing with clients. These articles also have pointed to the dearth of information on these topics in the social work curriculum. This study examines students' perceived needs for information in these areas. Suggestions for imparting information on matters of spiritual and religious diversity are presented. (Journal abstract.)
