Trauma Counseling and Treatment

Jesus has called and commissioned the local church to be a beacon of light and hope to those who suffer affliction. As followers of Jesus we are commissioned to “come alongside those who have been traumatized by loss and grief. This short manual is a collection of information gathered from many different approved sources to briefly provide Christian caregivers with an introduction to compassion ministry that provides care for victims of traumatic events. When people have experienced things they cannot stand, paraprofessionals (Christians who care but have not had formal training in psychotherapy) can often give them what they need to help them begin to heal. This mission of care and compassion is aimed at showing the Love of Jesus, restoring hope and healing traumatized people
