Gayle Crabtree, Founder, Hope For Healing. Org is preparing teleclass training on domestic violence geared towards clergy and church workers interested in learning, but unable to leave the office.
Classes will begin April 6 at 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m for six weeks. Included for the class will be an up to date manual and at the completion of the teleclass participants will receive a certificate for their training. The manual contains valuable information which can be referred to later, as well as church bulletin inserts, skits and pulpit helps.
For those clergy members (over 400 pastors) within the Holston Conference who took Gayle’s training in 2009, there is new, updated information available and this is the perfect time for a refresher course, or for first time attendees to learn the latest on how to effectively counsel victims of abuse and resources available to them.
This course is not “911” styled or crisis training, but helps church workers minister more effectively to victims already within the congregation and will help them identify victims and their families, as well as teach the proper ways to assist them.
Space for the teleclass training is limited so you will want to register early to reserve your spot. The series of classes are offered at the introductory (and ridiculously low) price of $35. Some scholarships may be available.
Teleclasses are designed to be interactive. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and are expected to be actively engaged during each session.
Here’s what your course fee buys:
- 6 interactive sessions
- 1 copy of Domestic Violence Information for Pastors and Clergy (Those who register within 2 weeks of class will receive an electronic version. )
- Unlimited email follow-up
- Supplemental material for certain sessions provided at no additional cost
- Discounted rate on podcasts and CDs.
- Certificate of Completion
