Online lecture Carmen Schuhmann (UvH) + discussion (July 8)

This year we will organize a one-day online summerclass on Wednesday 8th of July. Carmen Schumann of the University for Humanistics will give a lecture based on her recent ARTICLE on chaplaincy. After that we will discuss the article, and look at the chaplaincy situation in the countries of the participants in smaller groups. We will end with a plenary session, and look at the summerschool 2021. Please contact us at humgv@mindef.nl or info@humanistprofessionals.eu if you wish to register. 

Due to the Corona-circumstances we had to decide to postpone the summerschool, as you will understand. The University of Humanistics is very busy developing online classes for their regular students, which means they cannot prepare the chaplaincy summerschool to a good level. Also the uncertainties about the possibilities to travel in july are an important reason to postpone.

But we have set a new date in 2021, more or less in the same period: 5th of july till the 9th of july 2021. Please save the date.

WEBINAR: Humanist chaplaincy/counseling: methodology (26 February, 10h00)

In succession to the online meeting last december, EHP will host a new webinar on the 26th of February (10h00 European Time).

The webinar by Anouk Bolsenbroek will explore the work of the late Jan Hein Mooren on humanist chaplaincy and its methodology. This webinar was supposed to be given in december last year, but on that day Jan Hein tested positive for Covid 19 and a few days later sadly he passed away. He will be missed, but his work and legacy remains with us.

The webinar could be useful for chaplains, both experienced and beginning, but also for those who are otherwise interested, or developing humanist services. After the webinar you will receive some usefull literature.

Participation is free. After registration a link to the webinar will be sent by e-mail.
