Our contemporary culture fears death and dying. Many, including Spiritual care providers and clergy, feel inadequate in offering professional support to the dying and bereaved. And yet, of all the work of Spiritual and Pastoral Care professionals, caring for and supporting dying and grieving persons is one of the most critical. This course demonstrates an integration of the theory and practice of Spiritual Care to the dying and bereaved, through lecture, class exercises and conversation, guest interviews and audio-visual presentations.
