Introduction to ChaplaincyDesignation: CHAP 5023 / PACC 5023
An overview of the profession of chaplaincy, exploring the diversity that exists in this ministry. A variety of specialists will be involved in the course instruction through discipline-specific didactics, including prison chaplains, airport chaplains, military chaplains, university chaplains, and chaplains who are involved in the business, sport, and healthcare sectors. Students will be introduced to organizational and vocational aspects of these specialized ministerial settings. In addition, students will begin developing theological understandings of the chaplains unique call and will begin to develop a personal theology of care. Pastoral interventions will also be taught and competence developed in the areas of crisis response, stress management, dealing with loss, death, and dying. There will also be the opportunity for self-examination, where one might consider interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics that influence ones own relationships and faith development
