21st Annual Rev. Jerry Shave Clergy Day
PSYCHIATRY AND MINISTRY: PARTNERS IN CARE
Thursday, June 6, 2013
Hutchings Psychiatric Center Auditorium
810 East Genesee Street
Syracuse, NY 13210
For clergy, seminarians, chaplains, and lay pastoral caregivers
This teaching morning is designed to help clergy and other interested persons learn about the reality of mental illness by learning from our partners in psychiatry. Diagnosis, treatment options and building pastoral skills to minister with those suffering from mental illness will be explored.
The presenters are members of Upstate's Departments of Psychiatry and Spiritual Care, and Hutchings Psychiatric Center. The work of these experts is to practice the "art" of medicine—treating illness while simultaneously developing a therapeutic relationship with the person who is suffering. At Upstate, our mission is to alleviate human suffering through treatment, research and teaching.
