Tuesday-Thurday 8:30 am - 5:00 pm | Friday 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
The advanced session continues the equipping process for facilitators in Bible-based Trauma Healing using the book ‘Healing the Wounds of Trauma: How the Church Can Help’ and its associated program model. This proven approach uses applied Scripture and best mental health principles to address spiritual and emotional wounds caused by trauma of war, ethnic conflicts, natural disasters, car accidents, abuse, and similar events. The book has been translated and taught in over 50 countries with more than 150 language groups in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas.
The advanced session hones the skills acquired at the initial session and during the practicum. By the end of this session, trainees should be better able to solve program issues arising in trauma healing as they carry out their ministries. They should understand the materials completely and clearly and be able to teach in a participatory way. Participants who have the necessary competencies are certified as training facilitators or caregiver facilitators at the end of the advanced session.

1. Successfully complete the Initial Equipping Session, and
2. Experience teaching at least the five core lessons to groups of at least three people (plus as many of the optional lessons as possible), and send in reports on activities.

When & Where
Partners in Language Development
SIL International is a faith-based nonprofit organization committed to serving language communities worldwide as they build capacity for sustainable language development. SIL does this primarily through research, translation, training and materials development. SIL works alongside ethnolinguistic communities and their partners as they discover how language development addresses the challenging areas of their daily lives—social, cultural, political, economic and spiritual. SIL's service with ethnolinguistic minority communities is motivated by the belief that all people are created in the image of God, and that languages and cultures are part of the richness of God's creation.
Founded in 1934, SIL (originally known as the Summer Institute of Linguistics, Inc.) has grown from a small summer linguistics training program with two students to a staff of over 4,400 coming from over 86 countries. SIL's linguistic investigation exceeds 2,167 languages in over 100 countries. The organization makes its services available to all, without regard to religious belief, political ideology, gender, race or ethnolinguistic background. www.sil.org
