Spiritual Mentoring

Instructor: Elizabeth Kidd, RN, Founder of Place of Promise
Duration: 16 Hours

This course prepares the participant to come alongside the severely multiply injured person who is seeking new life in Christ. The mentor learns how to build a positive, trusting relationship with their mentee who then learns to have a personal relationship with God as their higher power. The mentor also learns how to help the mentee heal, grow, and ultimately be able to mentor someone else who’s lost and broken.

Grounded in scripture and illustrated with real-life experiences from over forty years of direct ministry, this training is based on three important concepts: knowing God, knowing yourself, and knowing your neighbor. In addition to the basics of mentoring, this course will examine the stages of human development and the impact of addiction, the twelve-step process and underlying scripture, the behaviors and thinking of the addicted and recovering addicts, and a stepped set of recommended activities.

Systems Advocacy – Videos Coming Soon!

Instructor: Elizabeth Kidd, RN, Founder of Place of Promise
Duration: 4 Hours

The social, legal, and health care systems are complex, confusing, and, at times, dehumanizing. Often, a multiply injured person has to deal with a dozen or more providers of health care, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, social and financial services, housing, correctional services, and job training. This can be completely overwhelming to the one in need of all these services. The Systems Advocate is trained to help that person navigate through and make use of all the services needed for optimal healing and growth to occur.
