2022 JUNE 15 | "Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care in the 21st Century: An Introduction" Book Launch
Join the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab and the Centre for Religion and Its Contexts for the launch of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care in the 21st Century: An Introduction (eds., Wendy Cadge and Shelly Rambo) on Wednesday, June 15 at 2 p.m. EDT. This new publication includes contributions from Pamela R. McCarroll, Emmanuel College's associate professor of practical theology.
Registration details forthcoming.
Wendy Cadge and Shelly Rambo demonstrate the urgent need, highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, to position the long history and practice of chaplaincy within the rapidly changing landscape of American religion and spirituality. This book provides a much-needed road map for training and renewing chaplains across a professional continuum that spans major sectors of American society, including hospitals, prisons, universities, the military, and nursing homes.
Written by a team of multidisciplinary experts and drawing on ongoing research at the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab at Brandeis University, Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care in the Twenty-First Century identifies three central competencies—individual, organizational, and meaning-making—that all chaplains must have, and it provides the resources for building those skills. Featuring profiles of working chaplains, the book positions intersectional issues of religious diversity, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and other markers of identity as central to the future of chaplaincy as a profession.
