Course focuses on FORGIVENESS

THIS YEAR'S Spirituality & Healing in Medicine course, co-sponsored by the Harvard Medical School and other institutions, was held December 14-15 in Boston. The course once again brought together healthcare professional and pastoral caregivers, chaplains, ministers, Christian Science practitioners, and others interested in focusing on the subject of "The Importance of Forgiveness."

While to traditional healthcare professionals, forgiveness may seem an ancillary topic to the nuts and bolts of helping patients attain "wellness," to those involved in day-to-day spiritual care, forgiveness is a familiar and significant component in helping people rise out of anger and unhappiness. Fortunately for patients, it appears that helping people to forgive themselves and others is becoming a vital part of what's now being called in the medical world "compassionate care."
