APC, along with our Strategic Partners, published the digital book “The Impact of Professional Spiritual Care.” This resource was designed to help chaplains inform colleagues, supervisors, potential employers and others about professional chaplaincy. Since its publication, APC has received great feedback from our members who are successfully using thePDF/Flipbook as a resource to teach others about professional spiritual care and the impact it has for care recipients as well as institutions.
Inside “The Impact of Professional Spiritual Care” readers will find 4 sections that pertain to understanding professional chaplaincy, including: Demystifying Spiritual Care; Professional Chaplains Qualifications and Competencies; Professional Chaplains Standards of Practice; and The Evidence for Spiritual Care. Each of these sections includes background, research and data on the benefits of spiritual care and the impact that professional chaplains bring to their institutions.
Now, we would like to hear more from you. Send your feedback and thoughts about this publication to firstname.lastname@example.org with “IPSC Pub” in the subject line. Your feedback is important for future editions of this resource and may be helpful to others in the profession.
