CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND SENSITIVITY:  The culture in which we are raised greatly influences our attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviors. Our families teach us how to believe, what to believe and how to treat people who are different than we are. Depending on family background, nationality, culture and age, cultural differences can be heavily ingrained from one generation to another. Studies show that differences between people within any given nation or culture are much greater than differences between groups. Education, social standing, religion, individuality, belief structure, and past experience affect human behavior and culture. It is our primary and basic aim to help you develop your ability to communicate with different cultures. Have an understanding of the skills and knowledge necessary to be effective in communicating with different cultures. Our abilities to communicate successfully encompasses many complexities, skills, principles, and concepts. The most important communications skill is our ability to exchange information between ourselves and the people we assist and serve in a timely and effective manner.

INTERCESSORY PRAYER: Intercessory Prayer is a very important part of chaplancy. The course provides guidelines on how to pray, what to pray for, when not to pray, resources for prayer, international intercession and factors that hinder prayer. In my years of experience working as a chaplain I have heard thousands of prayers by good hearted Chaplains, Ministers and Pastors, many rambled off a prayer that was obviously rehearsed, or what some seasoned chaplains call "Canned Prayer". Some saying the same prayer for everyone they visited no matter what their illness was, or their needs. I have personally always believed prayer should come from the heart for the needs of the person or persons we are praying for at that time. Knowing how to pray and when to pray for a chaplain and minister is a vital part of their ministry. For more information, the course objectives, and how to requesting this course.
