Encounter in Pastoral Care and Spiritual Healing

Towards an Integrative and Intercultural Approach

Edited by: Daniel Louw, Takaaki David Ito, Ulrike Elsdorfer

The International Council on Pastoral Care and Counseling (ICPCC) met in August 2011 in Rotorua, New Zealand for its 9th International Congress. Various discussions in the field arose from actual challenges, such as the earthquake in Japan, social changes, and, mainly, deprivations all over the world. The ICPCC offers guidelines on how to cope with these situations, which also include the indigenous traditions of the Maori culture, projects on inter-religious encounter, etc. - all of which provoke a rethinking of traditional spirituality. The Congress proceedings are presented in this book as a state of discussion within this globalized network. (Series: Pastoral Care and Spiritual Healing - Vol. 1)
