Life review is an essential means of exploring identity and meaning, and a primary MO for chaplains. Often, individuals in our care share stories involving trauma that has created deep, long-held wounds with profound effects on their emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Hospice chaplains know too well that memories of traumatic events seem unavoidable at the end of life for patients ? many of whom have never before opened these sealed-vaults of pain. In applying our expertise, compassion, non-judgmental stance, pastoral authority, and building on the trust established in the pastoral relationship, chaplains are uniquely suited to help patients deal with post-traumatic stress (PTS). In Native American traditions the healing work Shamans do with those suffering the effects of trauma is called ?soul-retrieval?. And yet, we tenders of the soul often feel ill-equipped when trauma narratives emerge, mindful of the risk of re-traumatization. Professional chaplains, therefore, must acquire more evidence-based tools for the containment and healing of PTS. We need to incorporate both theoretical understanding and counseling techniques from the rich and growing field of trauma research. As trauma-informed spiritual care providers, we can more effectively respond to PTS when it surfaces and promote soul-retrieval. This workshop will provide education on the basic neuro-physiology of trauma, insights drawn from attachment and parts theories, and practical interventions for addressing PTS drawn from a variety of modalities, including: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), EMDR, Narrative Exposure Therapy, Guided Meditation, and Neurolinguistic Programming.
