P6301 Trauma-Informed Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy

Trauma-Informed Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy is designed to bring knowledge and understanding to the implicit and explicit impacts of traumas alive in those receiving spiritual care for healing and growth. Facilitated by board certified chaplains and licensed professional counselors specializing in treating trauma, who have in-depth clinical and theological training. Will explore: the various types of traumas; the way trauma is evident in the mind, body, and spirit; cognitive vs. nervous-system trauma processing; real vs. perceived trauma processing; differences between presentations of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Will address how to engage with and de-escalate trauma responses and develop a Pagan perspective on Trauma-Informed Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy.
