Professional Development Program for Spiritual Care Practitioners

Date Posted: 19-Apr-2018

We are welcoming month-by-month registrations for our Professional Development Program for Spiritual Care Practitioners.  All information is available on our website.

Seventh Session - Wednesday 10 October 2018, Frankston Hospital, Peninsula Health

TOPIC:“Assessing and Responding to Trauma” - Dialogue with Gareth Fuller, Spiritual Care worker at Baptcare Sanctuary and Liz Stilwell, Pastoral Practitioner at RMH

As Liz’s gran used to say, “Better an empty house than a bad tenant". As spiritual carers, we often encounter people who have experienced major trauma or simply significant trauma from 'normal' life events. Let's consider the definition and recognition of trauma in patients we encounter, the question of stepping in or referring on, and some practical guidelines for gently assisting in trauma relief. These presentations will take a narrative approach, including the insight of poetry, to explore approaches to coming alongside the traumatised person in a way that doesn’t re-traumatise but rather reminds the person of a time without trauma.
