About the Event
As police services continue to expand their wellness services for members and their families, it presents an opportunity to revisit the traditional role of chaplaincy in policing and to rethink how spiritual care can become an integrated and essential part of a modern wellness approach. In this two hour webinar, the York Regional Police approach to wellness will be discussed, as well as how the role of chaplaincy has been expanded into a core pillar of the biopsychosocial spiritual approach to wellness YRP employs. Key considerations for spiritual care providers working with police services will be discussed, including marketing services, ethics, and ways to promote integration with other support services.
