On Tuesday, November 18th, Chaplain Dave Smith from the JustPeace Warrior Soul Care Initiative will be presenting a session at the 2014 PA Veterans Forum entitled “Soul Care; A Journey Toward the Healing of the Wounded Soul.”
The battlefield becomes a test of the soul as warriors confront the horrors of war. Some will be physically wounded. Others will experience the invisible wounds of mind and spirit. Healing the wounded soul is an underserved component of veteran well-being. This session will include discussion of the literature on the benefits of spiritual grounding; introduce the participant to the realities of spiritual trauma experienced in combat; and explore
strategies and resources for soul care to include integrating faith-based communities process for state civil service job titles with an emphasis on veterans’ preference.
