The Second North American Conference on Spirituality and Social Work

“Spirituality in Challenging Times:
A Resource for Practice, Advocacy, and Self-Care”

June 21-23, 2007

Dominican University (Chicago area)

Keynote Speakers:  Dr. Harold Koenig of Duke University, Director of the Center for the Study of Religion/Spirituality and Health.  His recent book is Faith and Mental Health:  Religious Resources for Healing.

Dr. Diana Coholic of Laurentian University in Canada.  She has studied spirituality in feminist practices and spirituality in social work education.

 

Highlights:  Thursday, June 21 is a day of experiential workshops. An evening “celebration of the sacred” will be led by Brother Joseph Kilikevice of the SHEM Center for Interfaith Spirituality.

Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, will include a mix of academic papers and participatory workshops on diverse themes exploring spirituality in the healing process, in social work education, in activism and community work, and in self-nurture for resilience and compassion.  An evening of arts and cultural sharing will include some groups from the area as well as a chance for participants to perform.

Within the conference, there will be opportunities for discussing research ideas, sharing “holy moments” in practice, and engaging in music, art and movement.  You are encouraged to bring along musical and rhythm instruments.

Accommodations include modestly priced, modern dormitory rooms.  The conference fee includes full meals from breakfast Thursday through lunch Saturday.  CEUs have been applied for.  We encourage you to come for the full conference experience, but daily rates are available.
