“The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.” Ps 34:18
This seminar serves as continuing education for persons in congregational and/or social careers. Basic knowledge of trauma, post-traumatic stress and resilience will be demonstrated and shared using personal examples.
A particular emphasis is placed on the accompaniment of traumatized persons. Space is given, when applicable, for participants to approach their own traumatic past, and to see it in a a new light.
This seminar is based on the successful model from the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at EMU (Eastern Mennonite University): Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience.
