Credentialing for Humanist Chaplains

RNA logo

We thank Religious Naturalist Association for their support of this webinar.

With the roots of professional spiritual care as we know it today in religious traditions, the credentialing process — from classroom education to CPE and endorsement and board certification — long has been associated with religious organizations. But what does this mean for chaplains who either do not wish to pursue credentialing through those organizations, or who do not identify with a religious or spiritual tradition?

This webinar will offer practical guidance for such chaplains and provide the elements to consider when pursing chaplaincy credentialing as a humanist chaplain.

Joel Berning is Manager of the Pastoral Care & Education Department at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
