Arthur Kleinman: The Moral, Emotional & Religious Sides of Caregiving
February 16, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Open to spiritual and pastoral care providers
Bishop Anderson House is delighted to present Dr. Arthur Kleinman, leading figure in medical anthropology, cultural psychiatry, global health and social medicine, on February 16 and 17, 2015. His career has focused on understanding the illness experience, and the religious and moral dimensions of human being.
Kleinman’s presentation for Spiritual Care Providers, “The Moral, Emotional, and Religious Sides of Caregiving,” will be held on Monday, February 16, at 3:30 p.m. in room #994 of the Armour Academic Facility.
This colloquy is based on his extensive research and writings in the field of caregiving and is open to all free of charge. Please register for free here.
We welcome you to meet Dr. Kleinman during a light refreshment hour after his presentation.
Dr. Kleinman has written in The Lancet about being the primary caregiver for his wife during her illness and death from Alzheimer’s, and his writings offer a groundbreaking approach to ethics as they examine “who we are” through some of the most disturbing issues of our time–war, globalization, poverty, social injustice–all in the context of actual lived moral life.
