The Oates Institute 2022 Interdisciplinary Symposium:

 Spirituality in the Work of the Spiritual Caregiver

The Oates Institute is happy to announce the digital recordings of our 2022 online symposium featuring internationally known authors, scholars, professors, and professionals. This diverse group of presenters represent the legacy of progressive thinkers and practitioners across multiple disciplines who have strived to integrate spiritual, theological, behavioral sciences, and medical concepts and best practices that honor the originators of the pastoral/spiritual care and counseling movement. Wayne Oates was one of those pioneers; his work has shaped and strongly influenced the field for over 75 years.

Ten outstanding 90-minute virtual presentations are included.  You can watch them at your convenience.
