Spirituality and Adaptation to Illness

This course examines the phenomenology and etiology of health and ill-health. It stresses the creation of opportunities for healthy human and spiritual growth: selfcare, primary nurturing environments, professional caring community, pastoral care and other cares. It also deals with the stressors which exacerbate certain kinds of illness, their systemic implications and their effects on individuals, families and communities. In particular, it covers the role of the pastoral caregiver in working with the chronic precipitating factors in facilitating growth towards wholeness: fear, guilt, inadequacy, broken relationships, etc., in facilitating hope, forgiveness, self-value, human growth and spirituality.
