Walt Disney World®, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 2009-- The Spiritual Care Collaborative (SCC) will host Spiritual Care Summit '09 Feb. 1-4, 2009 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Walt Disney World®, FL. This educational and networking conference is open to all professionals concerned with the spiritual health and well-being of those they serve, including chaplains, nurses, doctors, social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, religious leaders and others. The event was established in recognition of the connection between these professions, much as the wellness of mind, body and spirit are interrelated.

The conference invites attendees to bridge the gulf between disciplines, celebrating that which unifies and honoring that which separates, so all may work together toward the common goal of holistic care.

Plenary sessions will explore universal themes that underscore the importance of spirituality in all aspects of care, from prevention to crisis.

  • Dr. Benjamin W. Corn MD, chairman of Radiation Oncology at Tel Aviv Medical Center-Ichilov Hospital in Israel, will present, "Seek and You Shall Find: Crossing Disciplinary Boundaries within the Village of Care." From his own experience as a cancer specialist, Dr. Corn will offer models of care that effectively overcome the obstacles that exist among physicians, patients, chaplains and others.

  • David Deane PhD, assistant professor of theology at Atlantic School of Theology in Nova Scotia, Canada, will discuss, "Imagining Well-Being: How our Perspectives Shape the Way We Care." With a firm belief that health should not be defined by consumer capitalism that promotes "survival of the fittest," Dean will invite attendees to explore how faith communities and traditions can participate in, and take responsibility for, the perception of what a "normal" healthy body and mind ought to be.

  • Ada-Maria Isasi-Diaz PhD, professor of ethics and theology at Drew University in Madison, NJ, and founder and co-director of Drew's Hispanic Institute of Theology, will present, "Embracing Diversity and Caring: A Matter of Justice." Encouraging attendees to embrace diversity as preferable to sameness, Isasi-Diaz will explore how embracing our unique differences strengthens our solicitude - our ability to care about, care for and care with.

  • The final plenary session will be presented by Pamela Cooper-White PhD, professor of pastoral theology at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA, and co-chair of the Person/Culture/Religion Group of the American Academy of Religion. Serving as the "village weaver" she will circulate among the attendees, listen to the speakers and weave together the concepts and practical ideas discussed throughout the conference. In the closing session, Cooper-White will offer back to attendees her creative interpretation of the conference and her charge to all those who work in the "village of care" as we move into the future.

In addition, a series of pre-conference educational workshops representing a broad range of topics and experts in spiritual care will be held January 30-31.

The SCC consists of six pastoral care, counseling and education associations working together to define the field of spiritual care, develop best practices, collaborate with other disciplines and ensure that the spiritual needs of all who are in need of care are fully met.
