The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab brings chaplaincy leaders, theological educators, clinical educators, and social scientists into a research-based conversation about the state of chaplaincy and spiritual care. Driving our work are questions about how, in the midst of changes in the American religious landscape, spiritual caregivers can do their best work. We aim to improve how chaplains are trained, how they work with diverse individuals (including those with no religious or spiritual backgrounds), and how chaplaincy and spiritual care coheres as a professional field.
Starting in 2018, the Lab partnered with Boston University School of Theology on a project to enhance spiritual care education in institutions across the United States. The Lab thanks the School for its innovative spirit and collaborative agreement to host this LibGuide. Learn more at ChaplaincyInnovation.org.
