The Healing Circle: A New Model for Nurturing Spirituality in Jewish Family Service Agencies

By Marjorie Sokoll

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2007

The author examines a new model of self-care for human service professionals working in Jewish Family Service agencies, called the Healing Circle. The program was designed, the author explains, to alleviate the pervasive effects of work-related stress, since human service professionals are constantly in service to others and are as much in need of spiritual support as those they serve. Research has shown, the author further contends, that agencies that are open to the role of spirituality in the workplace may see improvement in job performance and satisfaction.
