UPCOMING IN-PERSON CONFERENCE!
“SPIRITUAL CARE IN TIMES OF WAR & DISPLACEMENT”
University of Tübingen, Germany
17-19 September 2023
In cooperation with the Protestant Academy of Palatinate
and the Center for Islamic Theology at the University of Tübingen
Wars are one of the main causes of expulsion and forced migration. Several million people worldwide are affected. Often, people escape to neighboring countries, but they also take great risks to get to Europe, for example. One of the main required tasks is to support them adequately, including psycho-social support-services. Being sensitive to different religious beliefs or spiritual needs is one of the most important prerequisites for this to succeed. As such it raises the question of Spiritual Care beyond denominational and religious boundaries that can adequately accompany people with traumatic experiences and at the same time is part of a holistically understood treatment and accompanying process.
Highlighting various regions and the specific needs of those affected therein, the conference offers lectures, presentations, and workshops as well as space for interdisciplinary exchange.
