Event description

Description

For over 14 years, Saddleback has had an effective Disaster Relief ministry. For the first time they are providing the opportunity for other churches to learn from their experiences, by bringing this training to us!

Have you been watching disaster updates on the news and wondered if you could help? It is the desire of our Saddleback Relief Team that everyone be equipped to reach out to the suffering and displaced both here in the US and around the world. We have developed these classes to do just that!

Light breakfast snacks will be available in the morning. Lunch will be provided from 12-1pm.


2 sessions:

| 9am - 12pm: Orientation

This orientation will prepare you to serve in the aftermath of these disasters, or others in the future. We will also talk about the emotional stages of what people go through in a disaster, as well as specific things you can say and do that are helpful to them. There are a variety of ways you can serve -- physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Don't wait until the next big disaster happens. This class will prepare you to respond with us quickly

| 1-5pm: Trauma training

Follow-up to the basic orientation which discusses more in depth the spiritual and emotional help you can give to someone in the aftermath of a disaster. You will learn the basics of how to simply enter into someones pain for a short time and help them process and recover from the disaster and to also notice the symptoms that may require professional counseling.
