CCSH is a research-based method to alleviate distress in patients and families and to mitigate burnout in healthcare professionals. CCSH hopes to offer to Spiritual Health Professionals and communities a research-based model of compassionate and inclusive spiritual care which fosters the ability to determine and address causes of suffering and which cultivates mindsets and skills supportive of the well-being of both care seekers and care responders. 

Training within Emory Spiritual Health

CCSH Training for Residents

Spiritual Health residents are trained in CCSH interventions and are given the opportunity to continue their training toward CCSH Registered Clinican status. 

CCSH Fellowship Program

CCSH Fellows will engage in a developing program to become registered interventionists in CCSH while working toward professional goals in spiritual health disciplines (e.g., Board Certification with APC, and strategic partners). CCSH Fellows work in a designated clinical treatment service area, receive training in CCSH, and consultation toward spiritual health vocational goals. While the application for this fellowship requires 4 units of CPE, this is a post CPE fellowship where no units of CPE are granted. This unique opportunity allows for specialization in the expanding professional field of Spiritual Health.
