This webinar will focus on the role of the chaplain in ethics case consultation and the use of narrative to understand worldview.

Participants will be invited to self-assess their perception of diverse worldview between themselves and others. Narratives and case studies will elucidate the problems inherent in our disregard for our differences. Attention will be given to worldview diversity among regions and subgroups in the U.S., as well as among international regions and subgroups.
