Crisis Chaplaincy Training Course Teaches

A Chaplain is a front line minister. He or she deals with the hands on Spiritual support of all the points of crisis intervention. A Chaplain needs to be trained in how to minister in the midst of a critical incident. The Chaplain brings the Spiritual component into crisis intervention. Training for the Ministry of Presence is in the forefront of preparing for Chaplaincy and not everyone can be in the middle of a terrible event and not know how to work with the victims involved at the time of the event. There are things you do and do not do as a Chaplain and the person working in ministry certainly needs to be educated and credentialed to know what to do. The Chaplain can go where other Ministers and Caregivers cannot go. The Chaplain can go beyond the yellow ribbon and work with victims and first responders alike. This is why the Spiritual Link in crisis intervention is missing. There are not many experienced and trained Chaplains available. Your community desperately needs you.

Restorative Therapy Course Teaches

Looking To Start Your Own Counseling Practice Or Just Want to Know How To Help Others Who Are Hurting.

A counselor works on the backside of a crisis. The backside is what happens to a person who has been traumatized and the need for helping victims to be able to work through the crisis and why it happened is the counselors job. Counselors help people who hurt for a variety of problems that occur from just living life. Counselors have a much more settled base than Chaplains. They are trained to get behind the eyes of their clients to find the core or the root cause of the problems their clients are dealing with. Counselors need to be trained in a much broader scope of life controlling issues in order to be able to work with the people affected that they will be helping. The established treatment industry mainly deals with the dichotomy of the hurting person. Dichotomy simply means the body and soul. Most often the trichotomy is left out. The Spiritual component is the missing link that the Faith Based approach helps connect.
