SKILLED CARE FOR THOSE WHO MINISTER IN TRAUMA SETTINGS
When you are called upon to minister in situations of natural disaster, violence, or other traumatic events, you will be affected, and eventually you will probably experience some degree of Secondary Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). If you are called upon to minister in such situations for extended periods of time, you will almost certainly experience some symptoms of Secondary PTSD.
Nancy is certified in EMDR, a specific technique that is often useful in reducing the lasting emotional pain, allowing objectivity, accessing spiritual resources, and alleviating many of the most troubling symptoms of PTSD. Already trained and experienced in the treatment of trauma and PTSD, Nancy helped many survivors, rescue personnel, and clergy to recover after the terrorist attack on New York City on September 11, 2001. We will work with you to custom design a retreat to fit your needs and your specific situation.
