About The Event

This basic training course (Cycle 1) teaches a holistic and interactive approach to engaging Scripture and expressive arts (e.g. music, dance, drama, visual, and oral arts) in the healing process for people who suffer from the mental, emotional, and spiritual effects of trauma.

The course combines biblical truths with basic mental health principles. Participants learn to address beliefs and emotions damaged by trauma in their own and others' lives through participatory learning methods and in small groups.

Come and learn how to promote emotional and spiritual healing in traumatised communities through the use of local expressive arts existing in those communities.
