Helping Hands

Chaplaincy

Do you need to talk?

Everyone carries a burden and when feelings go unprocessed, it can lead to compassion

fatigue and eventually burnout

Anyone who is experiencing fatigue, anger, self-doubt, or sadness may benefit from talking

to a chaplain. Chaplaincy isn’t about glossing over a situation, it’s about exploring feelings.

What makes us human is our constant search for meaning. When our sense of order and

purpose is disrupted, either by an accident, a death, the birth of a child, or a pandemic, it

disrupts something fundamental inside of us.

Chaplains learn how to listen, how to not insert themselves into a person’s story, and how to create

a safe, non-judgmental space where any and all feelings can be expressed. Unlike most therapists,

chaplains don’t shy away from talking about spirituality. Chaplains won’t bring in theology or

scripture unless the person they’re talking to brings it up first.
