Buddhist 101 in a Nutshell: A Field Guide for Caregivers

  • 11/18/2015
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • Online

When non-Buddhist chaplains encounter a Buddhist patient or family, they often have questions on how exactly to minister to them. Is Buddhism a religion or philosophy? Does Buddhism believe in a God or not? What part does worship, faith or prayer play? How is end of life approached? This 90-minute webinar will offer a clear snapshot into the world of Buddhism - its thought, traditions and practices. Participants will learn to identify the differences among the various schools, set up a Buddhist altar and use meditation or chanting to effectively pastor their patients.

Learning Objectives

1. Discern which school of Buddhism their patient is practicing and how it differs from other schools of Buddhism.
2. Provide better chaplaincy care to individuals and families who identify as Buddhist.
3. Share with their chaplain colleagues information on ministering to Buddhists.
