Event Details

Workshop Description

Strong emotions especially anger are often exhibited by couples during marriage or family sessions. Counselors could be caught in the middle when couples fight; some freeze (not knowing what to do), others flee (terminate the session) while some fight (as a referee) which may not be effective to move the counselling process forwards.

This workshop aims to help counselors understand the marriage/family counselling process from a Biblical and psychological perspective and have some basic intervention tools to manage clients’ strong emotions better hence effecting smoother conflict resolution between them.

1. Understand the important psychological and spiritual needs during the childhood stages.
2. Learn about attachment and importance of early parent-child care.
3. Recognize some of the nurturing factors towards the healthy development of the child.

Target audience:
Church workers, pastoral staff, lay counsellors and any others who wish to be more effective in couple or family counselling.
