Intro to Critical Incident Debriefing


On Sept 13th, the CPCA hosted its second instructional Webinar. Close to 50 police chaplains across Canada, both CPCA Members and non-Members, joined together via Zoom to listen to and interact with our presenter - RCMP Corporal Jocelyn Cardinal. Jocelyn is the Peer Coordinator for the RCMP "K" Division Wellness Unit. In addition to providing a comprehensive slide presentation, Jocelyn's extensive experience in the field brought principles/practices to life through the practical illustrations she provided. Chaplains were given the opportunity to ask questions throughout the presentation which made for a highly interactive 2.5 hours of time well invested. Thank you, Cpl. Cardinal, for sharing your expertise on the subject matter of CID.


I would like to recognize our CPCA 1st VP George Madden who works alongside Jocelyn in fulfilling one aspect of his many duties as Chaplain Coordinator for the RCMP "K" Division. Chaplain Madden spearheaded this Webinar and made all arrangements to bring this presentation to police chaplains. Thank you, George, for your walking out your vision for training and equipping police chaplains across Canada.
