David Anick is leading two evening workshop and discussion, Wednesdays May 16th and May 30th. David is co-leading a 5-day workshop on this topic at the Friends General Conference Gathering this summer and would like to share with FMC, some of the highlights to be presented there.
The first evening will focus on ways to support family members or friends in crisis, with an opportunity to share relevant stories. The models of “Spiritual Coaching” and “Intentional Peer Support” will be described.
During the second evening we will look into dealing with distressed people in our meetings. How do we work with those who may behave disruptively? What kind of visitation and support is helpful to the very depressed?
