This presentation will provide insights into the blessings and challenges that older adults experience, in addition to the blessings and challenges that parish nurses may experience in serving older adults.
Guilt and Forgiveness and the Effect on Health
This presentation will explore how guilt and forgiveness affect a person’s health. The parish nurse will better understand how to encourage individuals to forgive others and to appreciate the forgiveness they have received. Both forgiving and being forgiven have a positive influence on health and wellness.
This presentation will address loss from a broader perspective — not just loss from death. The parish nurse will benefit from this discussion about losses due to changing health, lost work, loss of material possessions and all losses that are common to human existence.
Theology of the Cross vs. Theology of Glory with Implications for Parish Nurses
The Rev. Dr. Leopoldo A. Sánchez’s presentation will help the parish nurse recognize the difference between the Theology of the Cross and the Theology of Glory and respond appropriately to persons who explain their condition with an inappropriate understanding of one, or both, of these theologies.
