Chaplain Training Pack:
5 Classes -- 6 hours of Professional Education with CEUs awarded. Taught from leading industry experts. Perfect to set a good foundation for new chaplains!
Chaplains often have received little training specific to care of the dying or working in an Interdisciplinary Clinical Team. Over the course of the past year, a TNMHO "Chaplain's Development Committee" was formed to dialogue with medical professionals and hospice chaplains, conduct surveys of administrators and of chaplains, and to research the needs for improving spiritual care of the hospice chaplain. In response to the identified needs and concerns, the CDC developed these trainings. They were recorded live from a special "Chaplain's Track" at the 2011 TNMHO convention and turned into the following 5 training modules. These specialized topics will focus on the needs particular to Hospice Chaplains and the Spiritual Care of the dying.
*This Pack includes: From Pastor to Chaplain, Personal and Professional Boundaries in Hospice Chaplaincy, Chaplain Documentation, Chaplain Ethics, Standards and CoPS, and Companioning
