Spiritual Care Australia 2024 Conference - North Sydney, Australia

24th - 26th June 2024

Spiritual care highly values the importance of person-centered care. SCA's 2024 Conference theme: “Patterns of Creative Spiritual Care – Enriching the Journey to Hope” recognises the richness of creativity when attending to the person at the heart of our care. The use of sound and music, aromas, art and imagery, drama and role, embodiment and movement, language and story are all mediums through which we seek to engage with the other.

Creativity, especially the creative arts, can be part of the expression of the compassionate, attentive presence required for effective spiritual care. It enables a connection in ways to enhance engagement with the self and others, to enable us to express our spirituality and meet spiritual needs. This conference will explore patterns of creative spiritual care, provide experiences of creative approaches, and examine the research supporting these methods.

In addition, the conference will also be detailing the latest research in spiritual care, and provide updates and engagement around developing education pathways, in relation to SCA's Capabilities Framework.
