Domestic Violence Online Course:
SPEAKING UP! RECOGNIZING & ADDRESSING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE in the CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY (student edition).
Many ministers, pastors or counsellors will encounter family violence. This course is designed for today’s Christian minister to thoroughly understand the dynamics of domestic violence and how to effectively and safely minister in DV family situations.
Dr. Nancy Murphy (Christian counsellor, founder/director of Northwest Family Life Christian Counseling Center)
Rev. Rodger Niemeier (Director of Eagle Wings Native American Ministries; NACM Vice President), is designed for today’s Christian minister to thoroughly understand the dynamics of DV and how to effectively and safely minister in DV family situations.
It is a self-paced no-time-limit course of 12 units. While it is offered at the graduate level (Seattle School of Theology & Psychology – Dr Dan Allender, where Nancy is also an adjunct professor), for mental health counselors for CEU’s, and for training to teach about domestic violence, Nancy has agreed to offer this course at the CHRISTIAN RESPONSE level at an extremely reduced cost of only $49.95 USD! (Professional Counselors/students pay $299 (for-credit offering); Trainer level is $450; and the Christian Response level (not-for-credit) is usually $299).
Because Nancy has such a heart for equipping Christians and ministers to address domestic violence, we are getting this tremendous discount. [To be a Trainer, you must take the Christian Response level first]
And here’s a YouTube presentation by Nancy to introduce why ministers/Christians should care about DV & training:
