The International Council on Pastoral Care and Counselling (ICPCC) met in August 2011 in Rotorua / New Zealand for its 9th International Congress.
Various approaches to the field arose from actual challenges as the earthquake in Japan or social changes and mainly deprivations all over the world. Spiritual Care and Counselling gives guidelines to cope with the situations.
Regarding indigenous traditions from Maori culture or projects on interreligious encounter: both provoke a rethinking of traditional spirituality. The proceedings present the state of discussion within this globalized network.
