Training: Healing in contact 2019
Ugljan, June 17th – 24th 2019 – On the island of Ugljan, Croatia, Croatian Baptist Aid successfully organized the program for counselling and mental health education for the fifth year in a row.
During this year’s program and education, the participants, around 60 of them from the countries of Southeast Europe, had a chance to learn about counselling and the process of change. The theme was a part of the bigger overarching theme of “Healing in Contact”, and the participants learned about the process of counselling and what it looks like, which skills are necessary in counselling (which they had a chance to try out in small groups), they learned about changes and the resistance to changes, and what kind of support groups there are and how to organize them. The lecturers for that part of the program were therapists Sandro Belić and Nataša Barolin Belić, who, with mr. sc. Snežana Anđelić, lead individual sessions for the participants.
With the theoretical part on the process of counselling, the participants had a chance to listen and participate in the spiritual part of the program which focused on the theme of suffering through the book of Job. That part of the program was led by a long-time pastor and the director of Croatian Baptist Aid, Toma Magda.
This program and education in personal mental health and counseling organized by Croatian Baptist Aid offers participants a chance to meet primarily with themselves, learn the basic techniques of counselling but also learn something that they can apply in their future life, work and ministry.
