Understanding and Helping people

Understanding and Helping People

Do you want to help people? Are there people around you who are experiencing difficult circumstances or problems in their lives and you have difficulty responding to them?  Maybe you have tried to give some good advice and it has been resented or ignored, and you are reluctant to try again.

This training programme is designed for those who would like to contribute more to friends, neighbours, parishioners; who want to show God’s love through care and concern for others, but don’t always know the best way of doing this.  The course is open to adults (young and old, male and female) who are interested in developing their ability to help those around them.   

No previous training or experience is required to join the programme, and those who have experience will find the course stimulating and informative, all are welcome.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop their understanding of human responses to life situations such as serious illness, separation or the death of a loved one
  • Develop their skills in coming alongside those who are hurting
  • Develop skills in forming good, successful and helpful relationships

This Course, delivered to church groups, will be held in a relaxed atmosphere of your choosing .  There will be opportunities for sharing individual ideas and experiences.
