How do you support the individuals in your community who live with mental illness, insecure housing, chemical dependency or trauma? How do you move from a transactional exchange to a relational engagement enabling substantive change?
Companionship is designed to encourage compassionate awareness for those struggling within our neighborhoods and our communities of faith. The training develops skills to listen consciously with openness, along with an awareness of limits and boundaries, easing the isolation these difficulties often bring. In this workshop you will learn how to integrate Companionship into your organization or your faith community with your staff, ushers, social justice teams, and pastoral care teams.
Join us for a FREE Companionship Workshop at St. Andrew’s on Saturday, March 17th from 9:00 a.m. – Noon. This workshop will be offered by Kae Eaton, Chaplain and Director of Mental Health Chaplaincy. Kae is a Chaplain Fellow in the Addictions Treatment Center at Seattle’s VA Hospital. She holds a Masters in Theology, with an emphasis in Counseling Psychology, and a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. She practices her faith in the St. Paul’s Episcopal Parish in Seattle.
