Spiritual Care as if Oppression Matters, a Seminar
December 3 @ 8:00 am - December 5 @ 5:00 pm
Students will engage with theory and practice of spiritual care within diverse cultural and socio-economic contexts. With a focus on healing, guiding, sustaining and reconciling persons, spiritual care is a response to their emotional, relational, and spiritual needs. This course is designed to to deepen students awareness and understanding of spiritual care through consideration of broader contexts including not only the oppression of individuals, but also oppressive systems and structures. Students will consider and integrate theological, spiritual, psychological and sociological perspectives and resources, attending particularly to matters of justice, healing, and wholeness.
