Challenging False Assumptions About Gender Factors in Pastoral Support

Described how women soldiers and female chaplains destroyed false assumptions about the importance of gender in pastoral support situations. The data showed that the skills and demeanor of the chaplain are the most significant factors in emotional and spiritual support. The results supported the conclusion that female chaplains can provide effective cross-gender support in a male dominated military context.
