Caregivers practice hospitality every day. Their scope of practice demands an openness that, at a drop of a hat when a call comes in, they are ready to respond. They don’t have time for a bad hair day or to deal with their personal issues when called to an accident or to the side of a critically ill patient. Each response demands attentiveness, and each response affects the caregiver differently because they care. While emotions may be held in check, emotions are there needing to be explored and even understood. Hospitality is directed toward another and at the same time directed toward the caregiver and the one receiving care
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Gain a greater understanding of the history and ancient practices of Hospitality and how they relate to the ministry of chaplaincy
- Be able to identify three levels of Hospitality and apply them to their ministry.
- Explore and integrate self-care skills that encompass the practice of Hospitality.
