The Introduction to Crisis and Trauma Counselling course is designed to provide the caregiver (lay-counsellor) with a bio-psycho-social-spiritual understanding of crisis and trauma and the practical skills to come alongside those experiencing a crisis and/or trauma.
It will introduce the student to the basic theory and theology of crisis and trauma counselling from a biblically based perspective. Lay caregivers will be equipped with the necessary skills to come alongside people in crisis with compassionate care. Within the boundaries of their training, they will be able to support those in crisis and make appropriate referrals. Attention will be given to all the different crises.
