One of the most complex challenges of pastoral, health, and other caregivers is to relate competently to the growing number of individuals and families from differing cultures, language groups, and faiths than their own. This conference will equip you with ideas, practical intercultural and interfaith tools and resources to enable you to serve diverse clients and patients, along with their family members.  The goals of the conference are:

  1.  To identify and assess your own diverse cultural and/or faith values, along with the biases and benefits embedded in these values
  2. To understand key factors that occur when you are involved in inter-cultural and/or interfaith relationships with clients, patients and/their family members.
  3. To navigate your inter-cultural and interfaith relationships competently by avoiding common pitfalls and implementing helpful communication techniques
  4. To learn effective ways of affirming and empowering your clients, patients and/or parishioners from diverse cultures and/or faiths.
