Some people we encounter in our institutions as patients, clients and employees are immigrants with stories of pain and loss that translate into cries for healing. Spiritual care providers are best qualified to provide care for these sojourners. This session will equip participants with the necessary tools for meeting the spiritual needs represented by these men and women who are adjusting to a foreign culture while dealing with unique pain and suffering. The presentation will focus on chaplaincy care of refugees in general, with illustrations that reflect different cultures.
