Chaplains are continuously exposed to clients, stories, and conditions that highlight issues of poverty, abuse, pain, loss, anger, and other tragic aspects of life. Research has unveiled the significant physical and mental consequences that trauma work has on caregivers (i.e., obesity, diabetes, chronic exhaustion, ulcers, depression, anxiety, guilt, angry outbursts, post-traumatic stress disorder, vicarious traumatization, compassion fatigue, etc.). For effective caregiving, chaplains must learn of the effects trauma exposure can have on themselves and on their personal relationships. This webinar is a result of the presenter’s significant PhD research and literature review.
Learning Objectives
  • Identify symptoms related to trauma exposure
  • Identify ways in which trauma exposure affects personal relationships
  • Articulate ways to protect personal relationships from the effects of trauma exposure

How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.
System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Windows Edge browser.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 13.0 or newer:
• Computer Speakers
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at for assistance.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.
