This is not just about suffering. It’s not just about trauma. This is about people.
Training seminars equip service providers with an understanding of whole person care and basic mental health /illness. An emphasis is placed on emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, and all forms of stress. Training also covers special populations, including women, children, older adults, homeless, prisoners, and combatants.
Lyn and her teams have trained:
Primary Health Care Workers
Leaders of Other Faith Groups
Participants are trained in basic assessment, counseling, and referral. Over time, many of these service providers connect, forming a network to meet the needs in their communities. Participants may become lay counselors or trainers of trainers. Most participants are changed or find healing themselves as a result of the training.
The primary training resource is Lyn’s book, Understanding People, Mental Health, and Trauma. Children receive direct care through trauma healing workshops using the book Baby Finds Grace.
