Providing Emotional Spiritual Care in Disasters

April 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Disasters come to us in many forms: natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires, industrial accidents, or biological disasters such as the COVID-19 pandemic. And some, sadly, are human caused, such as a mass shooting or bombing. However they come, being present and providing emotional spiritual care for survivors in times of a disaster is our calling. As children of a loving God, we are called to share that love in the world for the sake of our neighbors. This is the first webinar in a four-part series designed to provide basic skills and an overview of emotional spiritual care in a disaster. This webinar focuses on how to render psychological first aid and provide basic emotional spiritual care in a disaster. We will identify the emotional responses associated with the experience of a disaster, examine how grief and loss could impact our emotional responses; learn about the phases of a disaster, as well as the U.S. disaster response systems and networks developed through the years that include many local and national partners. And finally, we will discuss how to use psychological first aid in the aftermath of a disaster.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: Apr 19, 2021 05:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
