Publisher's Description

The first 48 hours are critical to the recovery of trauma victims.

First responders make the difference between life and death for trauma victims. But what is often not recognized is that when disaster strikes, spiritual caregivers are often among those first on the scene. For these caregivers response should also help propel survivors toward positive transformation. This book focuses on critical responses that are key in the aftermath of natural disaster, community violence, personal injury, and crime. These basics include: the power of presence, safety, assessment and triage, how we help, putting the pieces together, telling the story, hope, and caring in the long haul.

    Just because you are spiritual doesn't mean you know how to properly respond to someone who has experienced a crisis or trauma (Did you even know that crisis and trauma are two different things?). The First 48 Hours: Spiritual Caregivers as First Responders reveals the world of compassionate care as spiritual caregivers. This book is not just for fulltime trauma care providers. It provides the tools necessary to help others (and possibly yourself) through the difficult seasons of life. Learn how to provide possible life-saving spiritual care in time of need. Read it, read it again, and let compassionate care flow through you help others.
