The presentation will focus on the vocation of chaplaincy as a ministry, how the profession has evolved, and what one should consider if one is contemplating this ministry. Fordham is not charging for this evening event.
There is a $50 fee to attend the all-day, March 1 conference, payable in advance.
($25 for Fordham students and alumni.)

NACC is co-sponsoring with Fordham University's Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education a day of professional enrichment for chaplains and those working in spiritual care ministry (including APC, NAJC, ACPE, etc.) on the topic "Reflecting in the Aftermath: The Ministry of Spiritual Care for Trauma Victims and Spiritual Care for the Self." The focus of the day is on providing care to others after trauma and the integration of self care for the worker/chaplain in difficult or trying times.
The morning will feature a keynote:
"Reflecting in the Aftermath: The Mystery of Personal Trauma and Professional Care-Giving – Insights and Questions for Consideration" by Rabbi Stephen Roberts.
This will be followed by a panel discussion and participant exchange.
The afternoon will feature two more presentations:
"Trauma and Spirituality: Clinical and Research Perspectives on Healing" by Professors Lisa Cataldo, Ph.D., and MaryBeth Werdel, Ph.D., and "Making 'Sense' of Evil?" by C. Colt Anderson, Ph.D., dean of the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education.
Again there will be time for participant exchange and reflection. The day will conclude with an informal meeting for NACC members.
Thursday evening, February 28, we will offer two continuing education hours and Friday, March 1, we will offer five continuing education hours.
Both events are open to all interested parties.
