Rabbis, chaplains, and social workers are often called on to provide spiritual care near life’s end. Whether in response to serious illness, advanced cognitive or physical decline in older age, or unexpected, tragic violence, health care professionals and clergy need to respond compassionately and effectively with families facing spiritual, religious, and existential crisis.
The Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University will host an all-day continuing education program, “Spirituality Near the End of Life,” on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Yeshiva University Museum, 15 West 16th Street, New York.
Leading clergy, chaplains, and social workers will offer their knowledge, skills, and wisdom to assist professionals seeking to better integrate spiritual care into their professional and community work. Rabbi Richard Address of Jewish Sacred Aging is one of the presenters at this seminar.
