Chaplain Training Conference
The SGAUS Chaplain School will commence in Myrtle Beach, SC, 21-24 September, 2017. There are eight 2 hour training sessions planned beginning Thursday, 21 September with a meet and greet at 1400 hours. This is an exciting time to be part of SGAUS, especially for Chaplains.
Our mission is to provide Support for the Living, Care for the Injured and Honor for the Dead. We accomplish this mission by training at the same level as our counterparts on active and reserve duty. Chaplains are being challenged as never before so the profile of future Chaplains is evolving to meet the demands of an ever-changing environment. Therefore, our objective is to be both theologically as well as psychologically trained and pre-pared. Our medical professionals have succeeded by healing the mind and body but not the soul. Until recently it was overlooked. The metaphysical combination of mind, body and spirit has to work in tandem for us to be fully functional. This has changed our view of training. We must attain and keep high standards to meet our future challenges.
SGAUS can and will lead the way of our nation in preparing and molding future Chaplains to meet and excel at any challenge. In that context, we will offer a variety of courses that will enhance Chaplain skill, knowledge and ability. A host of out-standing professionals from around the country will be teaching the classes this year. The following list of courses can be available at the Myrtle Beach, SC meeting. We invite all SGAUS Chaplains attending the annual conference to vote on courses you would like presented and in addition offer additional suggestions by contacting CPT Bill Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Conference registration information will be published the first week in July.
Courses include but are not limited to: Moral Injury, Stress management, Secondary Trauma, Ministry Skills, Introduction to Chapel, Foundation of Chaplaincy, Ministry of Presence, Ministry of Purpose, Servant Leadership, Ethics and War, Privilege Communication, Ethical Boundaries, Military Funerals, Defining Chaplaincy, Theological Foundations, Legal Boundaries, etc.
This training will be concurrent to the SGAUS Annual Convention from September 21-24, 2017. Register NOW at … Register.
