Chaplaincy Skills Development
Welcome to our new page of information and resources on Chaplaincy Skills Development at Pacific School of Religion and the Graduate Theological Union.
The Offices of Field Education and Contextual Learning at PSR seek to support spiritual leaders for public contexts - government, higher education, hospitals, hospice, prisons, business, nonprofit leadership as well as congregational settings. These contexts all need a wide range of skill development.
Chaplaincy Skills Development is the first of multiple updated pages that will address a focused skill set.
Whether you are a current or a prospective student at PSR, the events, courses, resources, professional associations are offered as an invitation to learn and serve in diverse and life and community changing contexts.
Click here to sign up to an interest and action list. You will receive email updates and announcements about events, lectures, useful workshops, courses and other resources for chaplaincy skills development. PSR will never sell or share your email address.
