BACKGROUND - COURSE CREATOR
Chaplain Stephen Roberts, BCC is one of the leaders in disaster spiritual care. He is the co-author of: Disaster Spiritual Care: Practical Clergy Responses to Community, Regional and National Tragedy, 2nd edition and was a member of the writing group which created National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters' (N-VOAD) Disaster Spiritual Care Guidelines. Chaplain Roberts has extensive field experience ranging from overseeing 800 chaplains in New York responding to 9/11 to overseeing long-term Hurricane Katrina disaster spiritual care to providing direct disaster spiritual care within New York during its last terrorist attack. He has taught extensively on disaster spiritual care.
WHY THIS COURSE WAS CREATED
Since American Red Cross launched its disaster spiritual care program two years ago Chaplain Roberts has been repeatedly asked how those who wish to provide disaster spiritual care, either with ARC or other N-VOAD organizations, can receive high-level usable education to prepare them to respond.
Until now, there has been very little to recommend. That which is offered, is provided infrequently and not easily accessible. Thus, Chaplain Roberts has created ChaplainDL's distance learning course: Introduction to: Disaster Spiritual Care - Basic.
This course will be the first in a series on
Disaster Spiritual Care.
