From our partners at the Danielsen Institute at Boston University:
CHRYSALIS program to support chaplains’ well-being—enrolling now for fall cohort!
Are you feeling lonely? Burnt out? Longing for something more than just “self-care”? Join a free, empirically based personal and professional formation space for chaplains. Building on support groups offered in partnership with CIL during the pandemic, the Danielsen Institute has developed an 8-week online program—with group and individual formats—that offers a transitional space for reflection, respite, connection, and growth. We are currently testing the effectiveness of this program using a randomized controlled design.
CHRYSALIS offers opportunities to:
- Process the psychological, emotional, relational, and spiritual/existential impacts of companioning others amidst trauma and suffering.
- Identify and develop personal capacities and culturally embedded strengths to metabolize these impacts in order to build resilience and thrive as a whole person.
- Reflect on your intersectional identities, life experiences, and core values, and how these inform your work.
- Interrogate and resist personal, relational, and systemic pressures that are counter to your well-being, while working toward systemic change.
