Brevard County Chaplains’ Day

The Brevard County Chaplains’ Day will be held on Friday, October 19, 2012. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the program will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Parrish Medical Center, 951 N. Washington Ave., Titusville, FL 32796. This workshop is free, including course materials, continental breakfast, lunch, and door prizes.

This 4th annual Brevard County Chaplains Day is a joint effort with Health First’s Department of Pastoral Care, VNA Hospice Pastoral Care and Parrish Medical Center. The workshop is sponsored by Glenbrooke at Palm Bay, SETA, Ammen Family Funeral Homes and North Brevard Funeral Home.

Chaplains will learn how to offer spiritual support in unique communities, such as veteran transitions, aging, substance abuse, domestic violence, diversity, and community care.

Chaplains serving in any capacity in Brevard County and surrounding counties are invited to attend, including those in law enforcement, fire, crisis response teams, military, port, jail/prisons, hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, assisted living sites, or schools. Full-time, part-time, volunteer, active and/or retired persons are welcome.

Among other things, the program will help participants learn to understand issues of returning soldiers and identify effective interventions and community resources. They will learn to identify components of “compassionate fatigue” and methods to prevent it, how to recognize signs of dementia, identify needs of caregivers, as well as local and national resources. They will also learn to understand the scope of domestic violence and learn to identify ways to address it, including avenues of partnership with existing community agencies.

For additional information or to register, please contact Janet McCarthy at Parrish Medical Center via email at, or by calling 321-268-6111, ext 2264. The registration deadline if Friday October 12, 2012.
