Eva is interested in contributing to the formation of caring, competent, healthy social workers. Her practice and research interests relate to best practices to serve refugees and immigrants, providing cross cultural care, and working with trauma. Eva is also interested in the intersection of spirituality with social work – how we can help clients access their own spiritual resources to improve their functioning and how the spirituality of the social work practitioner can be used and impacted by one’s professional practice.
