Exploring Racial Identity and Trauma in the Role of the Chaplain

Lee, Dwayne

This qualitative research study explores how racial identity and racial trauma impacts a chaplain's clinical work. In the study, I interviewed eleven professional chaplains who have experienced racial situations either in their past or in their work or both and how those experiences have influenced their professional growth. After evaluating the responses of the interview, I was able to determine a number of findings that I believe would be helpful as chaplains continue to provide spiritual support in the culturally diverse hospice and hospital settings.
