• Chaplaincy Research

    While there is tremendous anecdotal evidence that chaplains’ interventions are meaningful and effective, there is a need to develop studies which develop and test theories and models of clinical chaplaincy care.

    We are preparing the results of a focus group study of parents’ expectations of chaplains and ways to measure chaplain effectiveness.
