Event description

Description

How can I help a young person when someone close to them dies? What is depression and what support can I give to a young person struggling with it? How do I engage with the family of a young person who is facing difficulty?

As youth leaders, we may not have all the answers, but we want to respond caringly, practically and with the hope, love and power of Jesus. This training event is an opportunity for you and your team* to become better equipped to respond when these issues arise in the lives of young people.

We are delighted to welcome back Emma Scrivener (emmascrivener.net) to start off our day with a keynote address. We will then be focusing on two topics in seminars:

Bereavement, with Elaine Roub, Young Cruse Co-ordinator, Cruse Bereavement Care (NI)

Depression, with Dr Ken Yeow, Consultant Psychiatrist, HSCNI.

In each seminar, we aim to provide a better understanding of the issue, a Christian perspective on it, and practical ideas and advice on helping and supporting young people. We will also hear from the personal story of someone who been through the issue.

Our third session, Engaging with Families, will focus on how we as youth leaders engage with the families, especially parents/guardians/primary carers, of young people who we aware are dealing with a difficult issue or circumstances.

You can find out more about The Big House on our new website at www.thebighouse.org.uk or by following us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Keep on eye on our social media throughout October as we announce more details!

Book your places online now, or contact us if you have any queries, but don't miss this opportunity!
