St Mark Ministries
Responding in Faith to Abuse – Michelle Markgraf
This seminar is highly interactive, weaving in activities, videos and group discussions throughout the day. Research shows survivors who have support from their church have more feelings of well-being and are less likely to return to an abusive relationship.
Saturday (8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. lunch provided):
We will examine the effects of abuse on a survivor and how trauma affects a survivor’s thoughts and actions, even long after the abuse if over. You will learn about some of the many reasons a person will stay in an abusive relationship and explore how you can help someone you think might be in an unhealthy relationship.
Sunday (10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. lunch provided):
Sunday’s training is specific to group management and how to be a facilitator. It is intended for those who want to know more about the support group ministry to survivors, and it equips them to become group facilitators.
