Spiritual Care as a new hybrid multidisciplinary and multiprofessional field needs to be defined and established on a scientific, as well as on a professional level. IASC will bundle synergies toward the shared goal of recognizing Spiritual Care by academics and practitioners.

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.
