Matthew Boulton, Ph.D., M.Div., President and Professor of Theology at Christian Theological Seminary, presents this talk on Tuesday, 10/29, from 12 noon - 1pm at Emerson Hall 304.
For many healthcare professionals and patients, religion and spirituality play important roles in how care and wellbeing are understood and experienced -- and yet in many cases, our capacities for exploring these connections are overlooked, underdeveloped, or relegated to specialists.
For example, many healthcare professionals conceive and experience their work as a spiritual or religious vocation; likewise, many patients experience illness, decline, recovery, and wellbeing in religious and spiritual terms. What we require are accessible, inclusive, engaging strategies for exploring these dimensions of life and work. This talk will survey this territory, using some specific Jewish and Christian resources as case studies, but with an eye to other traditions as well.
Presented by the Medical Humanities and Health Studies Program adn the Spirit of Medicine Program. Free and open to the public. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
