Trauma HealingThe Scottish Bible Society has just announced dates for Bible-based Trauma Healing training in 2019.

One year after the first training event was held, 40 people have been trained to lead groups, 10 groups have been established, and 100 people have attended groups.

From the Isle of Lewis to the Central Belt, this incredible resource is seeing lives transformed through the Bible.

Each training course offers the opportunity to become familiar with the Trauma Healing material, and to understand the impact the resource can make.

One minister who attended a training course in 2018 exclaimed,

I think every church in Scotland should have a Trauma Healing group and use this material.

Training involves going through the same five core sessions used in groups:

“If God loves us, why do we suffer?” “How can the wounds of our hearts be healed?” “What happens when someone is grieving?” “Taking your pain to the cross” and “How can we forgive others?”

The training courses, as with the Trauma Healing groups, are highly interactive.

Three training courses will be run this year:

Monday 17 – Friday 21 June 2019

Monday 23 – Friday 27 September 2019

Each of these courses will start with dinner on the Monday evening and finish with lunch on the Friday.  The courses will take place in Carronvale House, Carronvale Road, Larbert, FK5 3LH. The cost is £170 per person and this includes accommodation, all catering and all course resources.

We recommend that churches send two individuals to the training, as two leaders are required to run a Bible-Based Trauma Healing group.

Is this a resource that could make a difference to your community?
