Chaplaincy Care for a Young Man Who Attempted Suicide

  • 05/12/2015
  • 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
  • Online

In this session, Chaplain Angelika Zollfrank will present her case study of her work with Nate (a pseudonym), a 20-year-old man who attempted suicide. Nate's suicide attempt was related to conflict about his sexual identity. At the time of his discharge, Nate told the chaplain, "My family wants me to see a priest. It can't hurt, right?" The case study includes the chaplain's spiritual assessment of Nate and a description of the spiritual care that was provided to him. The case illustrates a chaplain collaborating with the psychiatric treatment team to help a young adult patient, who is an immigrant to the U.S., to engage a new stage of identity development, and its implications for his religious beliefs. Critical responses to the case will be provided by an experienced psychiatric chaplain and a psychiatrist who is also trained as a moral theologian. Chaplain Daniel Grossoehme will also comment on what this case contributes to building a model of chaplaincy care.
