Platform Day Friday 28 June 2024

On Friday 28 June 2024, IvOC hosts it's second annual Platform Day and a talented panel presents on the theme "Trauma & Healing", a most relevant topic given the geopolitical landscape we find ourselves in currently. How does the (orthodox) Christian faith help those dealing with various traumas as a result of migration, war, or military operations? What are the latest developments in terms of treatment, and what is the role of a spiritual advisor?

Orthodox priest and educator Fr. Michael Bakker from the St Irenaeus Orthodox Theologisch Instituut will give the Orthodox christian perspective on trauma in the church community and give examples from his interactions with the church community.

Additionally, Ms. Sanneke Brouwers, a chaplin in the Ministry of Defence and PhD candidate at Tilburg University, provides an in-depth look at moral distress among military personnel and veterans.

We round off the programme with the contribution of IvOC's own dr. Petre Maican, as he speaks on disabilities as a result of war and the Orthodox theology on disabilities.

To attend the symposium and for more details, kindly register via e-mail: info@oosterschristendom.nl.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 28 June in Nijmegen,  13.00-16.30hrs in Huize Heyendael, Nijmegen.
