The unique magazine dedicated to advancing the integration of spiritual care in health care.

Now is the time to establish a strong, clear voice for the inclusion of effective spiritual care as a standard of whole person care and for the profession of chaplaincy. That’s why the Spiritual Care Association publishes Caring for the Human Spirit® magazine for all who recognize this importance and those who are discovering it.

Articles in “Caring for the Human Spirit®” both guide spiritual care providers and other health care and ministry professionals who support individuals and their families, and offer insight to consumers facing these issues. SCA publishes Caring for the Human Spirit® magazine in the spring/summer and the fall/winter. The magazine delves into very real, but often rarely-discussed, issues that people and health care providers face every day. Our goal is to prompt conversation, highlight a chaplain’s role as an integral part of the health care team, and help people obtain emotional and spiritual support throughout life, especially during illness, injury and grief.

The Voice of our Community

We invite professionals to join the voice of our community by submitting articles on aspects of today’s care that you’d like to see communicated to a wide and influential audience. We invite the global organizations in the fields of chaplaincy, spiritual care, medicine, faith community nursing, first responders, social work, palliative care, and hospice to consider this magazine an extension of your mission. Together, collaborating on this publication, we can make the field of spiritual care stronger, wiser and demonstrably effective.
