Write for PlainViews

What are your thoughts, concerns, and satisfactions about your practice as a health care chaplain? Let your peers know, by writing an article for PlainViews®, the preeminent professional online journal for health care chaplains. Every month, we publish articles that articulate evidence-informed best practices. Here are some of the areas we are especially interested in publishing:

  • Teaching other health care disciplines about spirituality and the role of the professional chaplain;
  • What chaplains need to know about conflict management and ways to manage it;
  • Negotiation skills when working with patients, families, and staff;
  • The practical integration of resilience as an intervention and support;
  • Working with persons dealing with substance abuse and addiction;
  • Spiritual care to stroke patients and their loved ones.
