Personal profile

Research interests

Jacques Körver is associate professor practical theology, pastoral supervisor and CPE-supervisor (Clinical Pastoral Education). For 18 years, he has been a chaplain (hospital, elderly care, psychiatry). At this moment, he coordinates and supervises the practical training. Also he coordinates the Master program theology. In 2013 he finished his PhD on spiritual coping strategies of lung cancer patients. Since 2015 he leads the large scale Dutch Case Studies Project in Chaplaincy Care, together with professor Martin Walton (PThU). In this practice-driven effect research on goals, interventions, and effects of chaplaincy (in care, prison, army, and primary care) participate more than 50 chaplains, and 10 researchers from 4 different universities in the Netherlands. In addition, he is chief editor of the Dutch Tijdschrift Geestelijke Verzorging (Journal of Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care), and a member of the Research Board of the professional association of chaplains / spiritual care givers in the Netherlands. Previously, he has specialized in the personality of ministers, conflicts in pastoral settings, the organizational context of pastoral work, and the development of the spiritual care profession. In 2014 he edited a book about innovative practices of chaplaincy: 'In het oog in het hart. Geestelijke verzorging 2.1' [In the eye in the heart. Spiritual care 2.1]. Together with professor Christa Anbeek (VU Amsterdam) he teaches the postgraduate course Theology about and across the borders.
