Conference 75-Minute Workshop SA2
Saturday, April 29, 2017 – 8:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.
Workshop Level: Beginner
Kristie J. Zahn, MA, BCC
Ascension All Saints Hospital
The field of professional chaplaincy is being challenged to offer spiritual care to address the needs of an increasingly unaffiliated, diverse, spiritually minded society who find meaning and purpose outside the walls of traditional religion. Atheists, Agnostics, and those who embrace a spirituality of their own are growing in number. Neuroscience research supports spiritual intervention in healing and wholeness, without judgment or discrimination to a specific faith tradition. In this workshop we will explore tools for ministering to the “None/ Not Religious.”
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Learn various approaches to assess, initiate, and offer spiritual care to patients/individuals who find the sacred beyond traditional religion, who are in need of “Grace without God.”
