In this literature, spiritual intervention was conducted on elders in a coronary care unit (CCU) with anxiety and their spiritual well-being (SWB) was measured through questionnaires and interventions as well as through the Spielberger State Trait Anxiety Invertory and SWB scales. This intervention was found that spiritual intervention could enhance SWB and reduce anxiety in elderly in CCU (Elham, H., Hazrati, M., Momennasab, M., & Sareh, K., 2015). Spirituality intervention was found to be able to be conducted through self-treatment, individual and group therapy and music/art and other relaxation techniques. Furthermore, spirituality motions to humans that skills learned through intervention will aid in moving toward spiritual health after suffering physical pains (Elham, H., Hazrati, M., Momennasab, M., & Sareh, K., 2015).Then, describe your own thoughts on the use of spirituality in an intervention.I believe that spirituality is beneficial to the elder population as well as other individuals of any age group. Spirituality intervention will guide individuals in discovering positive coping mechanisms and thoughts in rough times. Spirituality may also provide structure to those wanting to gather their next steps in life and afterlife. Discussing religion and spirituality in treatment will also educate the social worker and allow them to become more competent in session. Reference:Elham, H., Hazrati, M., Momennasab, M., & Sareh, K.
