Workshops

In addition to ongoing trainings, LCI offers topic-based workshops on an ad-hoc basis throughout the year. Generally the topic reflects a relevant pain point people face. The objective of these workshops is to provide the biblical framework and counseling model taught in the basic training levels, and to apply these principles to the topics at hand. We are always open to offering our workshops at new locations, so if you are interested in hosting an event, let us know!

 

Lonely Together: Helping Couples Workshop

We’ve all seen it: a couple struggling in some way. Pain leaking out. Whether in a comment, a look, a sharp exchange. It can happen anywhere. They aren’t consciously asking for help, but they are letting observers know something is amiss. We notice. We wince. Maybe we pray, maybe we ask, “Is everything ok?” If it’s bad enough, they might open up a little. But it’s awkward for them, and for us. What more can we do?  Read more.
