Crisis Chaplaincy Training Course Teaches

A Chaplain is a front line minister. He or she deals with the hands on Spiritual support of all the points of crisis intervention. A Chaplain needs to be trained in how to minister in the midst of a critical incident. The Chaplain brings the Spiritual component into crisis intervention. Training for the Ministry of Presence is at the forefront of preparing for Chaplaincy and not everyone can be in the middle of a terrible event and not know how to work with the victims involved at the time of the event. There are things you do and do not do as a Chaplain and the person working in ministry certainly needs to be educated and credentialed to know what to do. The Chaplain can go where other Ministers and Caregivers cannot go. The Chaplain can go beyond the yellow ribbon and work with victims and first responders alike. This is why the Spiritual Link in crisis intervention is missing. There are not many experienced and trained Chaplains available.
