Tell Me About Your Losses...

Tell Me About Your Losses...


This webinar gives an overview of the impact of crisis and trauma on the body, mind and soul.   It relates to the impact of the current pandemic.  It has a particular focus on those who minister in chaplaincy and is a great overview of pastoral, scriptural and spiritual resources. 

This webinar focuses on two things – first, refreshing our memory about how trauma and the losses chaplains have sustained over these past months can affect our brains and our hearts. And second, to provide an opportunity to reflect on what chaplains have been going through. By using a series of biblical stories, chaplains will be able to begin to understand the trauma they have been through and begin to process their losses.

Slides from the webinar are available in PDF format here.
