Spiritual Care for Social Movements (CCS-335)
For generations spiritual professionals and caregivers have walked alongside movements to support the spiritual care and health of those fighting for social justice. This course will explore spiritual care and chaplaincy in these contexts - past, present and future. We will explore the historical and ancestral ways that social change has been connected with spiritual care and wellness in a variety of cultural contexts and movement eras for social change. We will also analyze the phenomenon of social movement trauma and the cycle of social movements in our current national and global moment to understand the terrain of social justice as it relates to spiritual and emotional wellness work of today’s spiritual caregivers.
