The article, “Adding Life to the Days of Terminally Ill Children in India”, by Hila Mehr states

“The care is delivered to the patient and their family or support system, usually by a team of experts that include physicians, nurses, social workers, health aides, chaplains as well as support personnel.

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

This sad article looks at the reality of terminally ill children in India who cannot afford proper care.  Pastoral care givers hope to give some quality of life to these suffering children.

This is the primary purpose of any Pastoral Thanatology–to care for the dying, of any age.  It is even more painful when one sees death coming so early to these young faces.  The study of Pastoral Thanatology hopes to teach care givers the skills to help alleviate the suffering of the dying and guide them.

The article, “Spiritual care: challenges in a multicultural and multireligious society”, by Piret Paal states

“Piret Paal researcher at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, explains the key points discussed at a recent German-speaking conference on multireligious spirituality and multiprofessional…”

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
