Day 1: This training is for church leaders, lay people, and professionals.
As a lay person or professional, are you interested in starting a support group for women who experience domestic violence and abusive relationships? FOCUS Ministries offers a certificate program for support group leaders in our Partners in the Journey Seminars. The training includes an extensive training manual that covers all the aspects of starting a support group, the dynamics of support groups, domestic violence training, how to help a victim, and information on how to provide spiritual direction for victims of abuse.
Day 2: FOCUS faith based DV training is a training program designed for those interested in working with domestic violence victims/ survivors within the Christian community. Participants can expect to learn the dynamics of domestic abuse and best practices in co-facilitation of groups and/or a role of an advocate. God delights in restoration of shattered souls. Healing comes by fully understanding the nature and ramifications of abuse. FOCUS believes that following a biblical path of restoration allows God’s grace to touch the heart’s deepest wounds. Training fee includes the training manual.
