Functioning in everyday life - inner well-being is often the first thing to fall by the wayside.
In many Asian developing and emerging countries, there is a great need in the field of trauma counseling, as there are few high-quality counseling and pastoral care services available for people, especially in poor circumstances.
Together with the non-profit organization Living Wholeness, we are involved in training lay counselors, chaplains and professionals. Through this, we aim to relieve the pain of the severe shortage of trauma counseling and accompaniment for people with limited financial resources. In doing so, we are already working in eight Asian countries and have developed and implemented an accredited university course in conjunction with the Brisbane School of Theology.
The heart of this work is to bring hope and human closeness to those in trauma situations. We give counselors a better understanding of how to deal with those affected.
