Depression: To believe in sunshine
Depression is a disease that can have a profound impact on your life and relationships, in particular if you do not understand what is happening to you. Your behaviour changes and if you and your family are not equipped to deal with it, it can be devastating for your relationships. This course is for everyone who has ever struggled with depression, has family or a friend who is living with depression or who is in a helping profession where they work with clients living with depression. The experience of having depression will be explored. Frameworks providing for new choices and strategies will be explored and practical suggestions for journeying with depression will be provided.
This short course in counselling for people living with HIV AND AIDS will train carers (professional and lay) to provide compassionate emotional and spiritual care and counselling for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families. In this experientially based course counsellors, pastors and caregivers will increase their own understanding of this person and his/her situation. A model for integrating emotional and spiritual needs is presented. The goal is to guide the person living with HIV/AIDS towards meaningful, fulfilled and “positive” living.

Ministering for sick & vulnerable children
During this course, attendees will increase their own understanding of the world of children with regards to their developmental needs, and they will be encouraged to reflect critically on the spiritual experience of children with regards to illness, pain, and suffering. The impact of illness, hospitalisation and health care encounters on the child and family will be discussed, including children living with disabilities, chronic illness, life-threatening conditions such as HIV/AIDS and cancer, as well as the dying child. A discussion on the hospital environment will enable attendees to establish safe and effective visitation programmes for children.
