Date:3/3/2008

Featuring Emmy award-winning composer, Yale professor and African women's advocate

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gary Malkin, Emmy award-winning composer, together with poet Kim Rosen, will kick off the Association of Professional Chaplains Annual Conference in Pittsburgh at the Westin Convention Center on Saturday, March 8 at 6:30 pm.

Spiritual health will be the conference focus. "Spiritual healing is the life work of our member chaplains," says Jo Schrader, executive director. "It is an essential, yet often overlooked, element of a person's overall health and well-being."

Mining the Depths of Faith in Changing Work Environments will be presented by David Miller PhD, author of God at Work, executive director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture, and business ethics professor at Yale. He will discuss the growing field of workplace chaplaincy, sharing insights into the pitfalls and promises of faith at work. (Sunday, March 9, 3:15 pm.)

Sobonfu Some, author, teacher and authority on African women's spirituality will address the spiritual needs of chaplains and other healthcare providers in her luncheon presentation Healing the Healer: Engaging a Transforming Community. Drawing from the rituals and customs of the Dagara people, Some will invite attendees to experience their own transforming renewal. (Tuesday, March 11, 1:00 pm.)

Chaplains and physicians can learn a new model of collaboration to enhance whole-person care in Forging Collaborative Relationships Among the Healthcare Team, presented by Christina Puchalsli MD and the Reverend Art Lucas BCC on Monday, March 10 at 8:30 am. Then on Wednesday, March 12 at 8:30 am, Peter VanKatwyk, professor emeritus at the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, will explore the history and future of pastoral care in The Living Human Document, From Anton Boisen to the Postmodernists.

The Association of Professional Chaplains is a multifaith association established to certify and serve its membership, and to promote professional chaplaincy. APC's roughly 4,000 member chaplains are professional providers of pastoral care, serving people in hospital, long-term care, hospice, correctional, home care and other settings.

There will be many other special events for conference attendees, including over 40 educational workshops, networking opportunities, a peace walk, yoga and meditation.
