Upcoming Webinars

Spiritual Sensitivity in Homicide Cases

Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2021
Time: 9:30 AM –11:00 AM
Presented by: Janice Harris Lord, LCSW, LPC
Sheri Allen, Jewish Cantor, Chaplain
Dina Malki, Inter-Religious Speaker, Writer

Description: Spirituality often comes up following homicides, even among those who claim no religious affiliation. Victim advocates are challenged to respond with compassion and, at the same time, stay within agency policies and constitutional guidelines. In addition, increasing cultural diversity is accompanied by religious diversity. No one can become an expert at culture or religion, but nuances that may relate to death practices and rituals, as well as participation in the criminal justice system, will be explored by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim presenters.
