Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)

Monday and Tuesday of this week, I completed the final course necessary to seek Chaplaincy Endorsement by the North American Mission Board.  I attended and completed the course "Critical Incident Stress Management" at the Oklahoma City Police Department Training Facility.
Sgt. Greg Giltner

OKCPD Sgt. Greg Giltner conducted most of the training, but Chaplain Jack Poe provided several segments.

CISM is recognized as the "standard" for assisting folks in crisis.  We learned about Compassion Fatigue, Coping Skills, and Critical Stress Indicators.

This morning, I completed and emailed my application to the North American Mission Board for endorsement. With this particular course and their endorsement, I will have internationally recognized Chaplaincy credentials.
