American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

A good reminder for care givers and social workers in ministry that not all share the same values and faith.

When giving spiritual care in a pastoral setting, one can face many cultural and religious backgrounds that view death, suffering and God from different prisms.  A pastoral care giver needs to be prepared to help people from these different view points.  Pastoral Thanatology is about serving everyone from a spiritual perspective and of human wholeness.  To be better able to accomplish this, a care giver must be well versed in various other cultures and spiritual practices.

A good spiritual counselor, pastoral care giver, or medical care giver should have at least some understanding of different cultures and religions if they are around death and the dying.

If you are interested in learning more about spiritual counseling, then please review the program.  If you are interested on how to become a pastoral care giver for the dying, then review our other programs in grief and pastoral care
