GAIN SKILLS FOR HOW TO COUNSEL THOSE IN CRISIS

PASTORS & MINISTRY LEADERS

As a pastor do you feel well-equipped to understand and counsel those experiencing PSTD, fighting with guilt from moral injury, or dealing with the repercussions of a loved one's suicide? The topics have become epidemics in our society today and we believe every ministry leader should be adequately prepared to counsel these individuals in crisis.

60%

of men (6 out of 10) and 50% of women (5 of every 10) experience at least one trauma in their lives (often leading to PTSD).

– National Center for PTSD

CHAPLAINS

Chaplains today are dealing with a "mental health crisis" as the number of soldiers coming home from years of war re-unite with their families and integrate within society. PTSD and moral injury are topics many chaplains are dealing with among soldiers under their spiritual care. 

We have 33 million veterans coming home from war who have been traumatized and have dealt with life and death situations. As believers, we live in a world that is full of trauma because of the fallen nature of our world - of sin. We are in this perpetual cycle of sharing the gospel, healing the brokenhearted, and then discipling them so they can go do the same.

– Chaplain Col. George Youstra

CAREGIVERS & FIRST RESPONDERS

Caregivers tirelessly pour their lives into patients every day. First responders witness terrifying trauma and see death on a regular basis. But who cares for the emotional and spiritual needs of those who serve? Caring for the caregiver is an important part of dealing with crisis care and is an anchor in SCOPE's program.

40-70%

40% to 70% of family caregivers have clinically significant symptoms of depression. About a quarter to half of these caregivers meet the diagnostic criteria for major depression.
