  • Dr. Dianne Bergant, CSA
  • The road to Emmaus is a road that we all must travel, a road that leads from presumed assurance, through the ambiguity of faith, to service of others. This is particularly the case for those who minister in the throes of issues of life and death. This presentation will examine the Lukan account of this encounter with the Risen Christ, the Emmaus journeys of other biblical characters, and some of the implications the religious meaning of this tradition might have in our lives.

  • Augustine (Austine) O. Duru, MA, MDiv, BCC
  • The work of chaplains often intersects with the stories and lived experiences of those they serve. Stories ignite our imagination; they help us transcend cultural boundaries and the barriers of time. Stories affirm who we are, and allow us to experience the links between ourselves and others, real or imagined. We use stories to make meaning of our lives. In addition, stories help us engage the complex narratives of pain, struggles, joy, grace, peace, reconciliation, and triumphs. In this interactive workshop, we will explore the art of storytelling as a way to nurture a culture of encounter in the context of chaplaincy – and learn how to harness the power of good story telling techniques to enhance and transform our ministry. A necessary prerequisite is an active imagination.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Learn to articulate and celebrate their own stories, and connect people to and through storytelling. 2. Learn to identify key themes in the stories they hear, and understand how narrative serves as an important category of spirituality and healing. 3. Learn good storytelling techniques they can apply to multiple ministry situations and settings.

  • Kristie J. Zahn, MA, BCC
  • The field of professional chaplaincy is being challenged to offer spiritual care to address the needs of an increasingly unaffiliated, diverse, spiritually minded society who find meaning and purpose outside the walls of traditional religion. Atheists, Agnostics, and those who embrace a spirituality of their own are growing in number. Neuroscience research supports spiritual intervention in healing and wholeness, without judgment or discrimination to a specific faith tradition. In this workshop we will explore tools for ministering to the “None/ Not Religious.”
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Examine themes that inform those who declare themselves unaffiliated to a traditional religion, and explore how you might offer spiritual care in a way that resonates with patients/residents who are “None/Not Religious.” 2. Learn various approaches to assess, initiate, and offer spiritual care to patients/individuals who find the sacred beyond traditional religion, who are in need of “Grace without God.”

  • Prudence R. Hopkins, MA, BCC-ACHPC

Lecture followed by role playing prepared case studies and/or case studies from the audience will facilitate the learning.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Articulate ways to help patients/families understand complicated provider information during goals of care discussions. 2.

  • Dr. Megan McKenna
  • Remember: to put back together again, to repair and make whole. Remember Jesus’ words! This is what the women hear in the tomb and then we walk with Jesus telling his story, showing us how to remember and to insert our own story-lines, life-lines into the Good News to the Poor. There is a saying among story-tellers: There is only One Story – how do you tell it? All our stories are made of passion, grace, violence, suffering, hope, touch, loss, and how to live resurrection now. In the telling, in the listening to others’ stories face-to-face is our meaning. It is time to re-member and come back together again as one.

$10.00


  • Frank Modic III, MA, BCC
  • One way of creating an opportunity for transformation in the hospice environment, especially for patients with dementia, is by identifying ways to use the ordinary in our lives to remind them of how we all connect to the divine. In many spiritual traditions the butterfly is a living symbol or metaphor for physical and/or spiritual transformation. This presentation will demonstrate how butterflies can become a useful tool to help us engage and celebrate with dementia patients before and after their deaths.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Understand how butterflies can be a useful tool to help them engage with dementia patients. 2. Experience how comforted families know that their loved ones are being treated as still able to engage with nature/others. 3. Be able to incorporate butterflies in their Celebration of Life Ceremonies.

  • Georgia Gojmerac-Leiner, DMin, BCC
  • In Lectio Divina we read and hear the Holy Scripture. We then pray and reflect, and spend time in silence with our God. Meeting with our patients we listen actively and hear their sacred stories. As we receive the stories we notice something in what they are saying resonating with us. In Lectio Divina scripture resonates with us. This reflective prayer and our ministry share much in common, including compassio and operatio, compassion and action.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Know how to pray the Lectio Divina. 2. Be able to apply the method of prayer to the ministry of listening. 3. Renew or learn a new way of deepening your ministry.

  • J. Randle Adair, DO, PhD
  • Consider the following terms that may, either consciously or unconsciously, come to mind upon encountering an alcoholic/addict on the street, under a bridge, sitting next to you on an airplane, or in a hospital bed: “despised,” “rejected,” “humiliated,” “forsaken,” “scorned,” “powerless,” “prodigal.” Are these not some of the same terms used in Scripture to describe Jesus Christ? This workshop will explore the similarities between the suffering of addiction and the Passion of Christ and explore how, from our personal and professional experience, we can offer support to bridge between suffering and recovery, religion and spirituality. We will specifically explore the power of powerlessness.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Understand the spiritual component in the disease model of addictions. 2. Distinguish between the external defenses of the addict and the inner core of vulnerability. 3. Examine the paradox of powerlessness becoming a strength in recovery.
