Assignment 1

Please go to Course Content for this module. Download and print the Chaplaincy Ppt and watch the video while following the notes. Print out and read the articles.

Write an APA-formatted reflection paper around 1,000 words on 1) what you gleaned from the articles, and 2) from eachof the presenters by name and type of chaplaincy, and 3) how you, as a counselor, might collaborate with chaplains in the future to assist your clients. In a reflective post/paper you may use the first person.

(“What you gleaned” and “reflective” means do not simply regurgitate the chaplain’s story – personalize the lessons learned). 

  • Chaplaincy notes in PPT in BB content

    In this forum you will find the PowerPoint (see attached above) to the video links and links to articles. The video is over two hours, so block that time before you sit down to watch it. Take note of what each chaplain tells you about his or her field as you will give a reflection about that in your paper.
