Is the Fresno CISM class full. I am not able to open that registration doc. Ted Bedford email@example.com
Sorry the link didn’t work for you. I’m sending you the flyer and registration form in a separate email.
Dr. Paget. Is there any new information about the summer 2014 suicide prevention class in Walnut, CA? I would love to attend.
It does not look like that class will be happening this year. Keep an eye on this website for updates and additions. Thank you for your continued interest in CISM training.
I’m trying to take one of your “Emotional & Spiritual Care in Disaster” ICISF Courses and can’t attend the one in Wichita. Do you have any others scheduled this year? Mickey.Stonier@sdrock.com
Hello, Mickey! Sorry you can’t make the training in Wichita. I don’t have that class scheduled anywhere else right now. Keep checking this website in the future. Thanks for your interest.
Josh, The CISM: Suicide Awareness course will be offered in Riverside on October 18, 2014. This is a one day class. Please see the Training Events tab at http://www.crisisplumbline for flyer and registration forms. Thank you for your interest in Suicide prevention!
Hi, Naomi. I was excited when your name and photo popped up when I wsas cruising on my computer. It is so good to know how significant and wide your ministry has become. I am proud to say “I knew her when”! June and I have settled into old age. We turned 85 earlier this month. We both are very much involved, especially in the First Baptist Church of Frederick, MD. June is the church pianist alongside the church organist. June has become quite a celebrity for her creative classics/hymn improvizations. I wish I had asked her to do that on occasion at Rice. Typically she begins with a dramatic classical piece and then weaves four or five hymns into it. She is having increasing memory and confusion issues, but it doesn’t seem to affect her music. We both send our love to you and John. If you and/or John happen to be in the Washington area, we would love to see you.
God bless! Dick
Wonderful to hear from you Dick and June! Life seems to keep you both busy and engaged in ministry. We, too, continue doing all the things we have always been doing and managed to add a few things to our plate, too. Life is blessed! Hope we have an opportunity for a visit in Washington sometime. Blessings, Naomi
I haven’t kept up with the CISM training for a while due to being very active as a First Responder Chaplain in NM. I have not forgotten you Naomi! From December 4th to 20th, I will be in Quantico doing a three week duty for the FBI Academy. Would like to keep in contact with you. Take care and stay safe. Chappy Jose+
Terrific to hear from you, Jose! You will enjoy your time at FBI Academy. My days there were characterized with awe, inspiration, and learning – for me, as well as the people there. Many blessings as you continue your important work as a First Responder Chaplain in New Mexico. Let me know if I can support your efforts in any way. Naomi
Good to hear from you, Naomi! Yup! Just busy with keeping up with my Instructor certifications relating to CISM, etc. I am working on creating a lesson plan that is culturally competent for the NM area relating to CISM and PSTD for the clergy regardless of denomination/religion. I also realize that the ICISF has a specialized training program for the clergy on how to deal with CISM, traumatic death and grief during critical incidents, etc.; however, I am trying to reach rural areas in NM in which the ICISF training is not reachable for our first responders and clergy communities. Any ideas?
Blessngs, Chaplain Jose+
Contact me through my personal email firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a great resource for you.
Your recent visit and the one Week seminar you facilitated in Kenya in Mumias Deliverance church,brought much light to us on issues of stress.we are forever greatfull as we practice what you taught us we see great changes.
Many blessings to you as you serve the people of Mumias and Kenya with the skills you have acquired. You have blessed me, too.
Dear Naomi, your Chaplaincy presentation yesterday and today (4/5&6) was very informative. I’d like to attend your training on 5/18/19 and also the 3-4 days in September through K-Love. Please let me know how I may register. Thank you very much!
Thank you for your interest in the OSFA class on 5/18/19. Because this is a “just-in-time” booking, we do not have the details published yet. Please watch this website and also http://www.csbc.com/ministry-resources/csb-disaster-relief-ministries for registration information.
You can register for my classes through KLOVE at crisis response.org. Hope to see you then!
Hi Naomi, Daniel Mueller here. I am have been thinking a lot about you and keeping you in my prayers from time to time, and would like an opportunity to have a call with you. I sent you a note through LinkedIn but don’t think it went through, and don’t think I have a current email for you. I hope you are well and hope we can chat at your convenience. Daniel
Daniel – good to hear from you. I’m available most of tomorrow. Naomi Paget
I’m wondering if your new Chaplain Foundation class in February will be recorded? I have a good friend who lives in Germany and is becoming a Chaplain for Firefighters For Christ International. He wants to take your class, but due to the time zones, he won’t be able to attend the class in February.
Happy New Year, Bob! Thanks for checking on recorded classes. This class is not recorded – the main reason is that student interaction is so critical to this training. Your friend could check the website when this class is offered again. There are plans to make it available in other time zones. I have had people from England and Germany in classes already.
Bob, The Foundations for Chaplains class is scheduled for June 22-23. Your colleagues can register at crisis response.org as usual. Registrations are open now.https://reg.abcsignup.com/reg/event_page.aspx?ek=0058-0021-3cc9fbdfab654d31a60a73085ff75c9d
Hi Naomi, I am currently completing a Master’s at Bible College in Australia and have recently found your book “The work of the Chaplain”. I have cited it in my final research paper. As a full-time public-school chaplain, I am really keen to look further into the theology surrounding ‘ministry of presence’. Thank you for sharing your insights and wisdom with other Chaplains. I will be encouraging other Chaplains to get hold of it themselves. In Christ, Lucas.
Lucas, Thank you for referencing “The Work of the Chaplain.” I would be interested in reading your final research paper, if appropriate. The “ministry of presence” has been challenging in the traditional sense during this “Age of Pandemic.” You’ll find a little more about that in the COVID-19 Resources, too. I’m sure the public schools are benefitting from chaplains like you in ministry!
