Description

This free interactive training is co-sponsored by the National VA Chaplain Center and Hope Lutheran Church.

Seats are limited, so please REGISTER to RESERVE your seat now.

A catered lunch will be provided at no cost to the participants! Our first training last year went great, so please feel free to come back or come join us for the first time!

Many Veterans and their family members seek help for their problems from clergy because they feel the faith community can provide anonymity, confidentiality and a stigma-free environment. Yet clergy members sometimes have limited knowledge about readjustment difficulties and the unique health issues such as post-traumatic stress, or depression common to returning warriors. This event can help prepare you to support them.

The Community Training Partner Initiative offers critical resource to educate and support the faith community.

Training Objectives

  • To provide knowledge that can improve pastoral care skills to better serve Veterans, service members, and their families.

  • To present the narrative approach to pastoral care to include the roles of past, present, and future.

  • To consider the roles of clergy in community pastoral care.

  • To review pastoral responses to and resources for Veteran care.
