The T.A.M.A.R. Method – Ministering to Victims of Sexual Trauma
October 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
NEW DATE! (Originally scheduled for Sept. 26)
How do you respond when someone discloses that they’ve been sexually abused?
Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted (RAINN, 2019). These are deep and lasting wounds that many people carry around in suffocating silence. The Samaritan Women is leveraging its expertise in trauma and abuse to equip the faithful to respond to the sexually wounded with compassion and wisdom. This virtual training is interactive with group activities and discussion.
Due to the interactive nature of this course, space is limited. Register now to reserve your spot! Please come ready to participate.
We will pause our training for a 30 minute lunch break at 12 noon (EST) as well as brief morning and afternoon breaks.
