*Case Conference: Case Conference is an experiential teaching tool intended to introduce students to the comprehensive psychological/social/spiritual clinical methodology a chaplain uses in his/her everyday work.  It is composed of background information regarding patient, family, social/cultural, medical, history and beliefs.  Also included is the transparent expression of who the chaplain is and what she/he brings to the moment of the pastoral encounter.  It tries to reveal the psychodynamic exchange between client and chaplain.  It includes a word-for-word (recollection) verbatim of a critical piece of the encounter. Followed by a self evaluation, reflection and questions for feedback.  Usually 5-7 pages.

**Consultation: A consultation is generally introduced in the third unit of CPE and is the primary methodology professional chaplains use in seeking feedback and clinical support from professional colleagues.  A consultation is a concise description of a situation, patient, problem, question, etc. upon which the chaplain wishes feedback, insight, support, critical assessment etc.  Generally less than one page.  It is the preferred professional method of interdisciplinary communication about needs/concerns of patients.
