Trauma Counseling with Tom Rose

In this episode, Pearse and Todd interview the Rev. Tom Rose, pastor of Ivyland New Church, about his experience as a chaplain with policemen, firemen, and emergency responders. Tom describes the job of a chaplain and shares a few stories from his two decades of service. He touches on the way he balances his New Church background with the ecumenical role of chaplain. Tom focuses on the phenomenon of pain in trauma-how the victim's experience differs from the perceptions of bystanders, loved ones, and responders.

Really well done. The questions were well stated and Tom's message was clear and comforting.

I remember Tom speaking about this at Laurel. So ironic that a bystander is projecting much more into the situation than the victim itself. Wonder if we do the same with illnesses, deaths, poverty, tsunamis?
