Live Webinar: The role of symbols and rituals in the practice of Hospice Chaplaincy

When: Friday June 19th

Time: 11:30AM Central Standard Time

Sponsored by Hospice Chaplaincy

In the last 5 years, there has been an increase in utilization of symbols and rituals as essential therapeutic tools in the practice of spiritual care at the end of life. In everyday language, the term ritual can have a negative connotation when it is used to describe repetitive and useless acts. In this webinar, we will focus on the structures, meanings, and functions of symbols and rituals.

A ritual is commonly defined as a specific activity or behavior that gives symbolic expression to certain feelings and thoughts. It may be habitually repeated or a one- time occurrence.

Symbols and rituals are vital in helping patients and their loved ones when faced with the reality of impending death.  This webinar will provide ways Hospice Chaplains can tailor these symbols and rituals as therapeutic tools in the practice of Hospice Chaplaincy. The facilitators for this webinar will be Dr. Saul Ebema and Dr. Joe Newton.
