In increasingly multicultural societies, spiritual care contributes in significant ways to a holistic understanding of suffering humans. Its interdisciplinary and interreligious foundations have to be further developed.

I believe that deep-rooted conflicts create wounds that require healing on a spiritual plane. As we look around the conflict-ridden world in which we live, the importance of spiritual care seems plain for all to see – yet in Western societies we often overlook the spiritual realm. The IASC brings together academics and practitioners from around the world to pool our resources and learn from each other.
