Caring for the Caregiver

This group training workshop is focused on equipping Christian and non-Christian healthcare professionals to deal with the difficulties more effectively they face in their daily lives at work, at home, and within their communities. This program focuses on three key aspects of learning – group learning where we listen and take note of key concepts; roleplay learning where we put knowledge into practice by playing roles that deepen our understanding of concepts; and one-on-one sharing with prayer partners where we discuss, encourage, and pray for ourselves and our partner in a more intimate setting.

The modules include

  1. Feelings – Yours, mine and ours:
  2. The Art of Listening:
  3. Christ Centered Caregiver:
  4. Caring with a process approach:
  5. Speaking the truth in love:
  6. Caring for the grieving

It is our prayer that participants will gain much from this program that will give you confidence to be on mission in your lives at work, at home, and in your communities.
