About the Webinar
This webinar will explore spiritual care in Canada’s provincial and federal prisons from a decolonizing, harm-reduction and trauma-informed lens. In alignment with the learning outcomes of the MPS Program, participants will have the opportunity to explore psycho-spiritual therapeutic approaches for working with incarcerated people. Chaplain Orev will introduce strategies from Narrative, Somatic and Feminist-based modalities, with practical information about what it means to offer spiritual care in the unique and challenging environment of Canada’s prisons. The webinar will also outline some critical perspectives on incarceration, providing alternative accountability structures and healing options through restorative and transformative justice. Chaplain Orev will take participants through some reflections on their own relationship to harm, violence and conciliation, using this awareness to grow empathy and solidarity with incarcerated people. Whether you are new to prison work or a seasoned supporter of incarcerated people, this webinar will help you meet and tend to the human beings we encounter in our justice system, and what these sacred works evokes within us.
