Communication and Caring for Ourselves:

A Chaplain’s Perspective

Rabbi Edith M. Meyerson, DMin, BCC

Palliative care clinicians are seen as experts in communication. Each member of the interdisciplinary team has their own lens for how they view communication and utilize it in their work. Who is the chaplain on the team? What do they do? How do they understand the work?

Come join us for an invigorating session to better understand spiritual care, the role of the professional chaplain and how we can utilize spirituality to better understand our patients and ourselves in a deeper and more connected way.

Rabbi Dr. Edith Meyerson is the Associate Director of Pastoral Counseling and Bereavement Services with the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute at Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine. Her clinical expertise focuses on providing spiritual care and counsel within the context of the palliative care family meeting. She is also an expert in the area of support and counsel for the professional caregiver and conducts debriefing and process groups for faculty, staff and volunteers throughout the hospital.

Rabbi Meyerson has presented extensively on the psychosocial, cultural and spiritual aspects of palliative care, as well as, the importance of interdisciplinary team care for seriously ill patients and their families. She holds a doctorate in pastoral counseling and rabbinical ordination from HCC-JIR and chaplaincy board certification from NAJC.
