Utilizing a holistic, relational approach, the Chaplain assesses the nature and extent of the client's concerns, develops a plan of care, and provides therapeutic interventions to promote and engage the client in their healing process, focusing on the wellness needs and goals of the client. Chaplains use interventions informed by religion, spirituality and the social sciences as well as counselling psychotherapeutic theories and an awareness of cultural traditions. Chaplains honor and promote diversity and inclusion, while modeling respect and sensitivity.
