I am a founding member of IASC because today’s increasingly mobile and interconnected world demands that caregivers from a wide spectrum of professions gain competency an interdisciplinary, intercultural and interreligious care.  IASC fills a unique role in providing a forum for serious, academic study of theologies and belief systems across faith traditions in the service of care for suffering that integrates spirituality and attends to issues of “ultimate concern” – mind, body, and spirit together.

Dealing with the challenges of forced migration on the one hand and of a general societal pluralization on the other hand, research on, exchange about, and developing models of spiritual care are coming to the fore. IASC accepts the challenge and provides an international, intercultural, and interreligious platform to reflect on and to generate appropriate offers. All will benefit.
