The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
In the Hospice Plus Spiritual Care Course, our focus is the spirituality of dying. The Spiritual Care Volunteer does not need to be ordained nor seeking ordination in a religious tradition. However, course work provides a supportive atmosphere for discernment of a call to chaplaincy as well as real world experience and education for application to Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE).
Learning methods include:
Reading books and articles, podcasts, workshops
Patient(s) and/or caregiver(s) visits
Attendance at Interdisciplinary Group meetings
Supervision with a focus on integration of experience and knowledge
The course is self-paced and may be adapted to the interests of the Spiritual Care Volunteer.
