ACPE Research Network Article of the Month
Transforming Chaplaincy is pleased to feature here the Article of the Month, produced by ACPE Research. Each month at least one article is discussed in detail; related resources are also recommended, as well as ways to incorporate this latest research into the classroom.
This article may be especially useful to newer chaplaincy students as the academic year gets into full swing, as a challenge both to be aware of how others may perceive a chaplain’s role and to be clear within oneself about that role. It follows up on material presented in our January 2020 Article-of-the-Month (“Healthcare chaplains’ perspectives on nurse-chaplain collaboration…,”), to fill out a picture of how chaplains wish to be understood by interdisciplinary colleagues.
