DAY ONE - Strengthening Connections Workshop

WHAT WILL I LEARN FROM THE TRAINING?

DAY ONE - Strengthening Connections Workshop

  • Recognise signs of emotional/psychological distress
  • Respond to the person’s immediate needs with care and support
  • Refer confidently to appropriate services

The session focuses on the support that is given to someone immediately following a disaster or critical event until more appropriate professional help is available, and/or until the person is less overwhelmed and more able to cope.

During this session, participants will learn to:

  • Reduce the initial distress
  • Foster short and long-term adaptive functioning (build resilience)
  • Minimise the risk of further harm


DAY TWO - Pastoral Care/ Community Disaster Recovery Chaplaincy Workshop

When disasters strike, people are affected in every aspect of their lives, physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. A holistic approach is needed to take into account all aspects of a person’s experience.

Issues of meaning, justice, forgiveness, hope, and worldview have spiritual elements. These are all challenged at a time of major loss, and many people connect these things with their own faith or spirituality. Holistic care should allow for pastoral and spiritual care and comfort in this context.
While other services and groups will aid in taking care of people’s physical and emotional needs, chaplaincy seeks to support people’s spirituality.

Chaplaincy Training prepares people to -

  • Provide pastoral presence and support to people and communities following disasters.
  • Participate in recovery activities.
  • Provide resources, training and support to local ministry agents as they, in turn, support their communities in recovery.
