The Bible-based Trauma Healing program is a well-documented Scripture Engagement strategy to use with new or on-going language programs around the world.
At this initial equipping session, participants learn basic applied Scripture and best mental health principles to address spiritual and emotional wounds caused by the trauma of war, ethnic conflicts, natural disasters, car accidents, abuse, and similar events. Participants explore if they themselves are carrying any wounds of trauma or loss and bring those to Christ for healing; learn how to lead groups in a participatory way; learn the program model and develop plans for using what they have learned in their community.
This session is intended for people who would like to explore becoming a trauma healing caregiver or facilitator so that they can provide basic care for those wounded by trauma and loss, or (optionally) train others to do so. Mental health professionals can benefit from this practical approach that is effective with groups cross-culturally. This session is appropriate for caregivers who will work in the USA or internationally.
Necessary qualification for attending this equipping session:
Able to communicate in English
Able to teach others in a community
Able to attend all of the sessions
At least 18 years old
Committed to helping other trauma survivors

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
