Pastoral Care Team Training

Family Life Centre presents : Pastoral Care Team Training

Friday, April 20 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM
Saturday, April 21 from 8:30 AM to 4 :00 PM

at Cedar Park United Church
204 Lakeview Avenue, Pointe-Claire, QC H9S 4C5

Refresher for pastoral care visitors, clergy, and anyone working in caring professions.
Training for those who might want to join a pastoral care team in their congregation.
This seminar will also be of interest to everyone who wishes to learn more about listening with the heart, honouring silence during conversations on difficult topics, and extending a compassionate hand to friends, family or acquaintances.

Learn more about listening, specifically to those in palliative care (and their families), those who are grieving or dealing with difficult diagnoses personally or with their loved ones (physical and mental health), those facing acute or chronic illness, and those who are housebound due to age or mobility.

The seminar includes presentations by experts, role-play (for those who feel comfortable), sharing of best practices on practical help, and small group discussions on connecting in meaningful ways in this fast-paced, largely technology-based world while maintaining safe boundaries.

$24 per person, includes materials, refreshments and lunch.

Open to all.

Pre-registration is essential by April 16.
