This "CPE Lite" training will help you strengthen your volunteer base.

Properly trained volunteers are a great resource to visit patients in hospitals and other health care facilities and at home. That's why HealthCare Chaplaincy Network has created the Chaplaincy Care Volunteer Training Manual, and many chaplains and spiritual care directors in the U.S. and elsewhere are putting it to good use.

The manual draws upon national expertise in the field of chaplaincy and volunteer management to help you train volunteers in:

  • Identifying spiritual distress
  • Communication and listening
  • Understanding the patient: including older adults and aging issues and individuals with visual or hearing impairments
  • Visitation
  • Cultural competency, spirituality, and religion
  • Death and grief
  • Confidentiality

The manual incorporates a range of teaching tools, such as practice examples, role playing exercises and reflective pieces, to ensure that different learning styles are accommodated.

Cost: Manual $35 (within the US)/$40 (outside the US)
