Supervisors Forum - Responding to traumatic tragedy

Presenter's Bio: 

Rev Dr Brian Conlon will attempt to guide us through his readings on matters close to his heart. Being a hospital chaplain and priest, his belonging to our world of therapy and supervision affords him transparency with his struggle integrating disciplines that can both merge and diverge in the heat of traumatic tragedy. His dialogical approach invites of participants an engagement of both the creative and critical aspects of the brain.

Event outline: 

The increasing occurrence of malicious and non-intentional tragedies alongside natural disasters behoves of us supervisors to be appraised of the need to be in a state of preparedness to respond in a spirited, holistic and interdisciplinary way to such events. We will be guided by a book written as a series of reflections after the London Bridge & Manchester Arena bombings and in the wake of the Greenfeld Tower fire, titled, Tragedies and Christian Congregations: The Practical Theology of Trauma - edited by Warner, Southgate, Grosch-Miller & Ison and published in paperback by Routledge in 2021.

Jon Snow’s book The State of Us: The Good News and the Bad News about our Society published by Bantam 2023 and Pete Greig’s revised book titled God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer published by David Cook 2020 alongside John F Deane’s Memoir, Song of the Goldfinch published by Veritas 2023 will be drawn on to enhance the sacredness of our proposed reflection and discussion.

CPD Certificates will be sent out to all participants after attendance at the Supervisor Forums.

The Zoom Link and Password for the event will be sent at least a day or two in advance
