Meet chaplains: men and women of different faith traditions who are trained to guide and comfort people of any faith, or people who aren't religious at all. They step in at these moments when life comes into sharp focus, in hospitals, prisons...even on the battlefield. In this special series supported by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, we follow seven chaplains on their daily rounds, in locations ranging from a trauma care center to a Buddhist retreat. 
Chaplains Part I: In a Senior Care Facility
We kick off our "Chaplains" series at a senior care facility where Oksana Chapman helps Russian-speaking residents to fan the embers of a spiritual life. To listen to individual segments, click here.
Chaplains Part II: Retreat
This week in our "Chaplains" series, we tag along with a Zen Buddhist monk in New York City. Then, how mindfulness can nourish patients and doctors. To listen to individual segments, click here.
Chaplains Part III: Deep Breaths in the Trauma Room
We start in an emergency room, where chaplains see the "worst of the worst." Then, how do we measure the impact of spiritual care? To listen to individual segments, click here.
