NJ National Guard chaplains, assistants train for trauma

Army and Air Force chaplains and chaplain assistants from all over N.J., sit at a simulated discussion during the Traumatic Event Management Course Jan. 16, 2015, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. The scenario discussion took place after a fictitious plane crash and the members each had different roles to portray. In the center, Army Capt. Shawn Found, a chaplain from the 117th Combat Sustainment Support battalion, plays a character who doesn't want to participate and acts rude during the discussion. 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)
