Compassion for One Another in the Global Village

Social and Cultural Approaches to Care and Counselling

Edited by: Ulrike Elsdoerfer, Takaaki David Ito

The International Council on Pastoral Care and Counselling (ICPCC) met in October 2015 in San Francisco for its 10th International Congress. Recent results from worldwide projects underlined the importance of an exchange within the globalized network. Interreligious encounters in spiritual care and counseling led to new insights, while aspects of social justice brought along new challenges. Sections on technology and internet communication opened a space for new reflections in the realm of spiritual experience. This volume presents documents from a joint meeting of ICPCC with American organizations for Pastoral Care and Counselling. It shows the enduring process of formation of a worldwide community of spiritual counsellors.
