Trauma Healing Training
Hosted by: Middle East Women’s Leadership Network (Shirin Taber) and the American Bible Society
For: Farsi Media Producers
Location: Newport Beach, CA
Dates: February 7-10
At this initial equipping session, participants learned basic biblical and mental health principles related to trauma care. We explored if we ourselves are carrying any wounds of trauma or loss, and were encouraged to bring those to Christ for healing. We learned how to lead groups in a participatory way; the program model; and developed plans for using what we have learned in our communities.
This session is intended for people who would like to explore becoming a trauma healing caregiver or facilitator so that they can provide basic care for those wounded by trauma and loss, or (optionally) train others to do so. Mental health professionals can benefit from this practical approach that is effective with groups cross-culturally. This session is appropriate for caregivers who will work in the USA or internationally
