Spiritual Care Counselor and Guide (Chaplain) – Virtual

 

 

It’s about time! Ezzree is changing the face of chaplaincy!

Spiritual Care Counselor & Guide (Chaplain), known as “Ezzree Guide” provides counsel, comfort, spiritual support and gentle guidance to the spiritual needs of “Uzers” (official name of Ezzree’s clientele). The individual who serves in the role of Ezzree Guide provides a spiritual care presence, perspective, and encouragement when consulting with Uzers regarding ethical, moral or personal issues. The Ezzree Guide’s primary role is to provide general support to Uzers who are seeking care, support and feedback during times of life transition/transformation, daily travail and questioning. In addition, the Ezzree Guide should be skilled in crisis and bereavement counseling.

Would you like to be an Ezzree Guide, facilitating One-on-One sessions and Clubz (support groups) from the comforts of your own home? Make your talents, skills, and expertise of compassionate care more accessible to others through Ezzree’s “it’s about time” model of reaching out to people in need. No longer does someone need to be in a medical facility to receive your listening presence and gentle inquiry into their life’s circumstance.

The Ezzree Guide promotes a healing environment enhancing spiritual and mental health and wellbeing for those in need. The role of the Ezzree Guide will be to support individual and groups of Uzers within Ezzree’s standards of visitation and to use professional discretion to adjust to a variety of environments with specific agreements and requirements. The Ezzree Guide must uphold Ezzree’s policies, procedures and protocols. Furthermore, when the Ezzree Guide is assigned to work within a particular institution, company or health care environment, he/she will also be responsible to uphold the policies, procedures and protocols of the organization.

The Ezzree Guide’s duties include providing meaningful encounters with Uzers. The Ezzree Guide must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of clinical spiritual care, human development and the challenges of the human condition that impact a Uzer’s life. The Ezzree Guide must demonstrate an active understanding of intergenerational, economic, interreligious, cross-cultural and interethnic competencies and sensitivities. He/she is also required to serve individuals and groups across the spectrum of sexual orientation, gender and relationship status.

The ability to assess information and perform spiritual assessments and to respond effectively and supportively is essential and required. In addition, the Ezzree Guide supports educational and community activities that include promoting Ezzree, teaching, community involvement and participation in research as appropriate.
