NJ National Guard chaplains, assistants train for trauma

Air Force Staff Sgt. Jennifer Robledo, a future chaplain assistant from the 108th Wing, helps Army Sgt. Xochi Risco, a chaplain assistant from the 42nd Regional Support Group, with her simulated distress during the Traumatic Event Management course Jan. 16, 2015, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. The scenario discussion involved role playing and took place after a fictitious plane crash. Risco played a personwho was heavily effective by the crisis, and walked away from the discussion. Robledo was a facilitator for the scenario and followed right after Risco to console her. The Army's TEM course is a week long and focuses on unit cohesion and effectiveness to help manage crisis situations. The course focuses on group activities and role playing to reinforce the lessons. At the end of the week, the students are able to take what they learned and bring it back to their units. (U.S. Air National Guard Photo by Airman 1st Class Julia Pyun/Released)
