Being There. Responses in Humanist Pastoral Care
This book aims to equip pastoral carers with resources to guide their practice and a toolkit of considered responses that can be called upon and reflected on when exploring pastoral and spiritual needs, based on issues raised by real people to non-religious pastoral carers in practice. They are not teachings. They are thoughts and responses — our reactions to conversations initiated by the people we meet. This book fills a gap in the pastoral and spiritual care literature not only as a resource for non-religious practitioners but also to give an insight for our religious colleagues into our discourse and approach.
