Join us for a two-day, online course that will address elements of systems change management and their practical applications in furtherance of the increased effectivity, impact, and value add of Chaplaincy care. As a profession whose purpose is to provide spiritual care, inclusive of responding to spiritual and emotional distress, it is understandable that Chaplaincy has been considered a marginalized entity within the organizational systems it operates and serves. And yet, as the constitution of “distress” has been expanding to mirror and include the intersectional and pressing concerns of the day, the Chaplaincy function has a renewed opportunity to influence organizational frameworks and operations.
