We had a great time at Center of Hope for Women… a ministry in Baguio City… in leading a one-day seminar on the basics of Christian Counseling. Around 15 trainees attended from the Center of Hope and Philippine College of Ministry. We also had a few of our CPE trainees join. We had five parts to our training. The first part was a presentation on the background or introduction to Christian Counseling. The next was a presentation on Emotions. The Center of Hope provided a great lunch. After lunch we had a learning activity that involved a ball of string and a series of insults and compliments (don’t ask… but it went well). Then we had our third presentaiton, and that was on self-care and healthy boundaries. Finally, we had question and answer. We also provided a handout on effective (and ineffective) therapeutic conversation. We really did not go over that because of lack of time.
