What differentiates that experienced and highly skilled chaplain from less experienced chaplains is expertise in the more complicated issues of chaplaincy. The modules you will view approach chaplaincy from the perspective of the seasoned chaplain. You will discover methodologies and strategies that will supplement and enhance your current base of knowledge. You will be introduced to Outcome Oriented Chaplaincy, issues that formulate Best Practice, and how to successfully navigate the Family Satisfaction Survey. Further, when you apply the principles of the spiritual assessment tool, you will identify spiritual concerns and how to document your pastoral care encounters. Trauma and crisis are part and parcel to the work of chaplain. One of the modules will explore how the chaplain can manage typical traumatic circumstances and crisis environments in which the chaplain finds him/herself. Some chaplains are tasked with bereavement responsibilities in addition to their chaplaincy work. This is not an easy assignment; therefore, providing transformational care in bereavement work is not only a goal but a clearly defined ministry you will find helpful in your work. As you know from your experience, the chaplain is the “heart and soul” of the Interdisciplinary Team/Group. How the chaplain functions in the Team/Group will elevate his/her reputation and chaplaincy as a valued discipline. That the chaplain is a culture creator, influencer, and contributor to the IDT/IDG enhances the chaplain’s presence as a key leader. The overarching goals of these modules are twofold: to inspire Chaplains in their work and to shape chaplaincy into a domain that will continue to the finest and best of servants and pastoral care practitioners.
