(Trauma Triggers and Addiction)

Are you listening well?


If someone is struggling through trauma triggers and the stronghold of addictions, are you prepared?


This one day course is designed for anyone who wants to do effective, Trauma Informed Ministry to help the hurting. We will examine the power of empathy, which we can practice by listening, acknowledging and understanding how adverse experiences in a person’s childhood and adulthood have shaped their lives and health.
