A Significant Reminder--By David Roth

Today, October 1st, 2015, is the 50th anniversary of the death of Anton T. Boisen (1876-1965), founder of the clinical pastoral movement. 

Without Boisen, no one would be doing clinical chaplaincy today. 

Because of him, we who are clinically trained in pastoral care, counseling and psychotherapy are able to help others to find meaning and purpose in the midst of crisis, distress, loss and grief.
