Lifecare Course

The Lifecare Course is for anyone who wants to develop their listening skills and gain new tools to help them listen well and care for and disciple others.

What will I learn?

We cover topics such as:

  • the importance of confidentiality
  • relational skills for Carers
  • helping people build motivation to change
  • creating positive resources for spiritual, emotional and physical health
  • helping people with overwhelming or unhelpful emotions
  • steps for addressing relational issues – forgiveness, amends and reconciliation
  • de-escalating conflict
  • grace, guilt and shame
  • when and how to refer people to other sources for help
  • relating the past to the present
  • skills for helping people change unhelpful thoughts and beliefs
  • communication skills for sensitive situations

 

As a course participant, you will have the opportunity to learn these specialised skills, then practice them with other participants in interactive triads where you take turns as Lifecarer, Client, and Observer

What happens after the course?

Some graduates of the course use their new Lifecare skills informally with people in their lives and ministry areas.

Others who go through the Lifecare course may feel called to serve missionally in a more formal, volunteer pastoral role on Central’s Lifecare ministry team. This team is supervised under the Care ministry.

What commitment is there?

We understand scheduling conflicts are unforeseen at times, but because so much growth and learning takes place in the interactive triad sessions, it is important to be present for all of the sessions.

Course Dates

Our next course is being held Antalya, Turkey, October 15 -18.
