Spiritual Sensitivity in Homicide Cases
Presenters: Janice Harris Lord, Dina Malki, Cantor Sheri Allen
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. This webinar will explore religious death practices and rituals as they relate to the criminal justice system.
