Developments of non-religious pastoral care: theory & practice

  • Zoom
  • 8th Sep '22 11.00 am – 1.00 pm

The session will provide embedding of pastoral care within a healthcare chaplaincy context and historic developments – leading up to the non-religious provision of pastoral care in chaplaincy. There will be an opportunity to practice some of these skills in smaller groups. The session shall furthermore touch upon key concepts of ‘walking along-side’ someone’s story and will touch upon the use of story-telling within providing pastoral support.

Lindsay van Dijk has been trained on master’s level in the Netherlands at the University of Humanistic Studies (Utrecht) to provide humanist and existential counselling, coaching and pastoral care. Lindsay is accredited as a humanist pastoral carer through the UK Board of healthcare Chaplaincy (UKBHC), the Non-Religious Pastoral Support Network (NRPSN) and as a humanist funeral celebrant at Humanists U.K.  

She was the first ever U.K- based appointed head of chaplaincy as a humanist in February 2018 and made national and international headlines. She is currently the head of chaplaincy at another large NHS Trust, the chair of the NRPSN, supervisor and trainer at Humanists U.K. Her PhD studies concern 'The experience of humanists entering faith-based healthcare chaplaincy teams' at Middlesex University.  

The workshop will be delivered online via zoom.
