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, it comes, being present and providing emotional spiritual care in a time of disaster is critical.  It’s what we are called to do as church, as children of a loving God called to bear that love out into the world for the sake of our neighbor.  
This 2 hour webinar focuses on how to render psychological first aid and provide emotional spiritual care in a disaster.  We will identify the emotional responses associated with the experience of disaster; we will look at how grief and loss impact the emotional response; we will learn about the phases of disaster, the systems that come into being, the activities and partners that resource a disaster response ... and finally, we will learn about rendering psychological first aid in the aftermath of a disaster.  
This is the first webinar in a four part series of webinars designed to provide basic skills and an overview of emotional spiritual care in a disaster.    Hope you can come and join us!
