Odyssey Impact: The Conversations
Prison Chaplains: On the Spiritual Front Lines in Correctional Facilities
Show Notes

Spiritual Care Providers working within correctional facilities across multiple faith identities face many challenges every day. But now, in pandemic conditions, the complexities have multiplied: grief needs, religious accommodations, increased stress and trauma on both those who are incarcerated and staff, and overall strain on already scant resources. Join us for a critical conversation with chaplain colleagues who are working in various correctional contexts, including men’s and women’s, private/federal/state/county, juvenile/adult facilities. How are they providing care and hope during COVID-19?
