INTRODUCING

SPIRITUAL CARE SERIES

Altura Learning (formerly ACC) and Health Television Network (HTN) has partnered with Meaningful Ageing Australia, UK universities and UK/AUS Care providers to produce a complete training course for volunteers, family and friends of older people to gain key practical knowledge to offer quality voluntary pastoral and spiritual care. The Spiritual Care series was originally developed to train Christian volunteers in spiritual care but we have now also developed a specific training for a multifaith approach. This program has been specially produced to cater a broader community of people who would like to provide spiritual care, and who come from a wide range of religious or spiritual backgrounds.

SPIRITUAL CARE SERIES

BUT WHAT IS SPIRITUAL CARE?

Everybody has spiritual needs and concerns with what we call the “big” questions of life. Some people find meaning, comfort, hope, purpose and a sense of community through their religious practice, beliefs and/or community of faith. Some people do not. Regardless of whether religious faith is a part of a person’s life, spiritual concerns, resources and needs can still be very important, especially during a hard time. The Spiritual Care series offers the opportunity to redefine what good pastoral care looks like within the context and banner of spiritual care with a multifaith approach.
