Keys to Spiritual Care
Fri. 28 April 2017, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm AWST
“Spirituality is universal, deeply personal and individual. It goes beyond formal notions of ritual or religious practice to encompass the unique capacity of each individual. It is at the core and essence of who we are, that spark which permeates the entire fabric of the person and demands that we are all worth of dignity and respect” (from the National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care).
This seminar addresses a number of key questions to support our spiritual care practice:
Context: How do we attend to spirituality in a multi-faith world?
Communication: How do we communicate beyond words?
Connectedness: What tools can support us to engage meaningfully with others and discover what is most important to them?
The seminar will include interactive presentations, opportunity to network with other practitioners and optional site tours. It acknowledges that all staff have a responsibility to provide spiritual care to older persons.
