Wounded Heart 1

Healing the Wounded Heart is a four-session small group trauma training for ministers to the incarcerated. This training will prepare ministers to lead small groups of incarcerated persons in learning how to respond to their life trauma through Healing The Wounded Heart, a five session ‘course’ of 2 hours per session. Each session integrates principles of mental health and Catholic spirituality.

Attendance for all training sessions is mandatory. Ministers must have access and be able to facilitate two small groups in their correctional setting upon completion of the initial training. A follow up Advanced Training is also required (date to be determined).

The training and all materials are free as a Catholic initiative of the American Bible Society.

The number of participants in this training will be limited due to the Zoom dynamics and discussion. Please register soon.
