I have enjoyed meeting and working with the Western Regional ADF chaplains at HMAS Stirling. Again the area of Moral Injury sparked lots of discussion. We looked at the conscious and sub-conscious processes at work in PTSD and Moral Injury and began some reflection on forgiveness, reconciliation and moral repair.
Today we shifted focus to leadership and systems theory and finished with some work on self care in ministry.
Round 6 of the seminars I have been asked to facilitate for chaplains in the ADF is underway in Brisbane. We have covered the dynamics of pastoral transactions and moral injury and repair. Today we concluded with work on leadership, systems theory and self care in ministry. Some extra notes referred to in the sessions have also been linked.
I am enjoying a visit to the Northern Territory to spend two days with the Northern Chaplains at their annual seminar. This is the fifth of seven seminars I have been asked to facilitate this year for ADF chaplains.
