The focus of this summerschool will be:

- today’s moral issues and questions chaplains have to deal with

- how different countries interpret humanistic values of the humanistic lifestance in chaplaincy

- lectures and practical’s on subjects that handle the daily practice of humanistic chaplaincy such as moral counselling and creating secular rituals.

- visiting some work fields of the humanistic chaplaincy in the Netherlands.

Target groups are humanist chaplains, or persons/groups that are working in that direction. We will hear from or visit a diversity of Dutch and international chaplains. The University of Humanistics will organise sessions on humanist chaplaincy, chaplaincy research and humanist services. We will look into a professional standard and cooperating with confessional chaplains. And we will focus on strategies to establish humanist chaplaincy, by hearing form different countries.

A cultural event will be part of the program
