The Field Guide for Aspiring Chaplains series is intended to offer a basic introduction to the profession of chaplaincy, from education and training through to practice. Each session includes an in-depth conversation with spiritual care practitioners on topics of key importance to those considering careers in chaplaincy; there are also opportunities for small-group discussion afterward (not recorded).
You can view recordings from previous sessions below. Those interested in our Field Guide series should also download our free eBook Beginner’s Guide to Spiritual Care, now available here.
