Trauma Competent Churches
November 3, 2018 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Helping the Church to Compassionately and Competently Serve Children and Youth from Hard Places.
Join us for this FREE faith-informed, trauma-informed training to help children’s and student ministry volunteers, leaders and staff discover practical tools to serve children and youth impacted by trauma. The morning will help attendees better understand the needs of children from hard places and consider whether the environments we provide for them in our churches are creating felt-safety and healing.
The training will be facilitated by Jonathan Reid, the Executive Director of Fostering Hope, an organization mobilizing the Christian community to love and serve the foster care community. A practitioner in the trauma-informed Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and Trauma Competent Caregiver (TCC) care models, Jonathan’s faith-informed approach helps attendees understand the impact of trauma on child development and offers practical tools to care for them with compassion and competence.
