Facilitating a Spiritual Support Group

A Delta Ministry Certification Course
Instructor: Amy Halas Goff, MS

​A support group is just that--support! However, there is an undercurrent of implicit learning that happens in a group setting.  An effective and spiritual facilitator is doing more than just monitoring dialogue. He or she is also modeling control, unconditional Christ-like positive regard, the use of spiritual tools, empathy, and problem solving. Our job as a facilitator is to be empathetically solution-focused without expectation.

Course Objectives:
1. You will understand the effectiveness of a cognitive behavioral approach, and why it is    
   a scriptural sound technique.
2. You will understand the impact of modeling the use of spiritual tools: 

    prayer, scripture, and worship
3. You will learn how to empower participants to share.
4. You will learn how to restate and reframe concerns.
5. You will learn skills for redirecting participants.
