Description

This work evaluated the experiences of 45 parents of children with cancer and 101 cancer patients with their home pastors and hospital chaplains. The satisfactions and difficulties encountered in these interactions are detailed, and recommendations are offered to aid persons in acute distress. Individuals in these circumstances appear to desire spiritual support more than evident psychological aid, though the skillful use of the latter to understand the religious desires of the patients and parents is appreciated. It is also evident that pastors dealing with problems related to potential terminality are themselves under considerable stress.
