- Articulate the concept of “giving psychology away”
- Discuss how “the real work begins after we leave”
- Explain the role of related professional and personal boundaries
- Distinguish between an authentic and a humanistic counseling approach
- Teach these important skills to patients and their support circles
It is vitally important for chaplains, social workers, and bereavement teams to have the ability to “be present.” When we are with people who are ill and their loved ones, it is even more important to teach patients and families to be present for one another.
