Course Memo

This course explores the care of persons and peoples as they navigate their private and public lives. It prioritizes understandings of care for students living and leading in a variety of contexts. This course assumes spiritual care, like religion itself, is always contextual and intersectional, and most easily recognized in storytelling. Thus, it privileges voices from the margins, whose responses to global realities tend to be narrative in nature. Both personal reflections and practical skills will be examined, and students will be asked to develop case studies from within their contexts. Tracing the various dynamics that impact care at every level, this course will be of use to students who seek spiritual tools to foster their own healthy leadership style.
