Soul Healing Advanced Certificate

Advanced Certificate for Soul Care Providers

Soul HealingSoul Healing responds to the needs of spiritual directors, ministers, chaplains, pastoral care workers and social service workers to more effectively address the soul care issues that emerge following natural disasters, tragedy, or violence in the community. We have been training and supporting spiritual directors since 1996. Our commitment to those who live in poverty and on the margins has enabled us to develop an expertise in the spiritual aspects of a healing response to trauma.

In this advanced seminar, we consider soul healing in relation to individuals and to communities.

  • What is the role of the spiritual director in response to trauma?
  • How do we interface with the spirituality of a particular individual or communal setting?
  • What is our relationship to therapeutic professionals?
  • How do we embrace appropriate limits without limiting the capacity of the spirit?
  • How do we care for ourselves as we experience the trauma of others?
