Mental Health Fundamentals in Spiritual Care
- What Everyone in Palliative Care Should Know

Fully Online 6-Week Course Offered by HealthCare Chaplaincy Network and the California State University Institute for Palliative Care

This course is for chaplains, community religious leaders, physicians, nurses and other professionals who work with or encounter populations with challenging mental health issues. It provides essential information about how to offer effective spiritual care to patients and their families, and helps build practitioner skill and confidence.

This course identifies and teaches:

* The relationship between spirituality and mental health

* Common mental health symptoms and the impact on spirituality

* Spiritual-care practices to improve patient quality of life and reduce suffering

Students who took the first class in August praised it highly:

"A must course for APC chaplains. So glad I took it!"

"Well worth the investment of time and money. I am very pleased with the course and its content. This course is recommendable!"

"As a CPE supervisor I have learned new approaches which I will integrate in my curriculum. I found the collegial discussions and work on case studies enjoyable and very helpful for my practice. The fact that several chaplains from our hospital took the course together helped us to learn more about each other and how we work. It was an encouragement to continue doing regular case study reflection together and build in that type of peer support and reflective practice."

"Excellent coursework and challenging case studies. Thank you for putting this together."

"Excellent course! It covered a helpful material in an organized and useful format."

Next class starts February 2nd. Seats are limited.

Cost: $799 + fees.
