TC colleagues publish chapters in new book on pediatric chaplaincy
Transforming Chaplaincy is proud to note that several colleagues have published chapters in a new book on pediatric chaplaincy. Pediatric Chaplaincy: Principles, Practices and Skills (Jessica Kingsley Press) was released in April and has been launched by several events in the subsequent weeks. As noted by the publisher, “Pædiatric chaplaincy requires a range of approaches, both in terms of administering spiritual care in a multifaith setting and the complexities of working with children who have a serious illness or disability. This is a research-based best practice guide, covering core principles and skills as well as specialist care situations.”
Among the collection are chapters by several chaplains and CPE supervisors affiliated with Transforming Chaplaincy:
- Wyatt Butcher, Chaplain to Mental Health Service, Canterbury District Health Board, NZ, and Lindsay B. Carey, Palliative Care Unit, School of Psychology and Public Health, La Trobe University, AUS, “Pædiatric Spirituality, Space and Environment”
- Daniel H. Grossoehme, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Cincinnati, USA, and Lindsay B. Carey, Palliative Care Unit, School of Psychology and Public Health, La Trobe University, AUS, “Pædiatric Chaplaincy and Research”
- Naomi Kalish, Coordinator of Pastoral Care and Education, New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, USA, “Major Incidents”
- Daniel Nuzum, Healthcare Chaplain and CPE Supervisor at Cork University Hospital and Marymount University Hospital and Hospice, Ireland, “Giving Voice to the Story: Working with Patients Who Cannot Speak”
Congratulations to all our colleagues on yet another milestone in chaplaincy research!
