Abstract:

The objective of the study was to identify data and recommend strategies to enable chaplains to minister more effectively as members of healing teams to persons with psychogenic diseases. Report presented suggestions for the structure of a year long training program. However, the firm did not sufficiently outline a program which could be readily implemented. The report did not provide adequate information on how ministry should be provided to patients suffering from psychogenic diseases. This report relied heavily on data which included facts already available to this office. Consequently, no implementation is anticipated. DACH decided to accept the draft final report and require no further work of the contractor. Author
