Focus Military Ministry

Professional Development Training Day for Chaplains, Staff Workers and Leaders

It was a privilege to be back in Canberra, this time at ADFA and have the opportunity to work with a group of Army, Navy and Airforce Chaplains, along with Staff Workers and Leaders of Focus Military Ministry. Certainly an improvement over last year which was held via zoom. Thanks to the Bible Society who supported the day.

Under the title of Trauma and Trust, we worked through a range of areas involving dealing with trauma, the loss of trust relationships when trauma occurs and moving toward trauma-informed practice.
