Designation: PACC 4043

The reality of death dramatically informs our living, and yet it is a reality that we can tend to ignore until forced to consider it. It is vital for ministering-persons to grapple with the reality of mortality and to develop means of caring that address the complexity found in experiences of dying and grief. In this course, Biblical, theological, spiritual, psychological, social, medical, and ethical dimensions of dying and bereavement will be discussed. Students will be given opportunity to embrace more deeply the reality of their own mortality, and will develop strategies to effectively and compassionately care for others in the midst of dying and grief.
