Thursday December 15, 2016We invite you to join us on Thursday, December 15, 2016 for a 30-minute webinar,

Caring Science – Exploring the Evolution of Caritas Literacy with a Postmodern Critique

.Join Dr. Jean Watson and Dr. Sara Horton-Deutsch for a passionate and collaborative dialogue on what constitutes

‘Caritas Literacy’

or more importantly

lack of

human caring illiteracy.

‘ A postmodern critique will be offered to uncover evidence of

‘human caring illiteracy’

within our current socio-political-professional institutions and society. Formal ontological practices of Caritas Literacy will be emphasized to overcome current caritas challenges. The overarching aim is to engage a critical caritas consciousness and cultivate new authentic caritas communities from within and without. Both Sara and Jean will draw upon the newly released book: Lee, S., Palmieri, P., Watson, J. (2016) Global Caring Literacy. NY: Springer.
