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.

Prof. Dr. Pamela Cooper–White, Union Theological Seminary, New York

The IASC offers an important platform to further develop intercultural and interreligious concepts of spiritual care. The IASC seeks to broaden the interdisciplinary network of people working and doing research in the field of spiritual care.
