A practical introduction to Outcome Oriented Chaplaincy, providing a framework for chaplains to deliver the best possible care within the healthcare system.
Brent Peery D.Min is Vice President for Chaplaincy Services & Spiritual Care at Memorial Hermann Health System in Houston, TX. He has worked extensively as a consultant for Outcome Oriented Chaplaincy and is a regular speaker and presenter at national chaplaincy conferences.
With just the right mix of personal experience and comprehensive
research, Dr. Peery establishes that effective chaplaincy care
requires much more than intuition and thoughtful intentionality.
Relying on relevant history, perspectives, and experts, Brent
articulates how to ensure thoughtful intentions result in outcomes
worthy of the trust placed in the professional chaplain by those in
need. The attentive reader will come away with usable and
integratable options for their own clinical context. -- The Rev.

Brent Peery is our foremost champion for outcome oriented chaplaincy. His book is an excellent introduction to this important model for chaplaincy care. It should have a prominent place in chaplaincy education programs. -- George Fitchett, DMin, PhD, Transforming Chaplaincy
