Balancing emotions in an unbalanced world
Loving Limits – Positive and effective discipline
(webinar for South-England Children’s Ministries)
In a time of crisis, it can be a gift of incredible kindness to call someone and just listen to them, especially if they are alone, distressed, frightened and anxious. Here are some resources to sharpen your listening skills and infuse them with kindness. There are some handouts and the recording of a live Zoom seminar on listening skills created by Karen Holford (family therapist) and Helgi Jónssen (our health director and psychiatrist). It’s not a polished presentation, but it will help you to be a channel of God’s love when you are listening to others in crisis. We hope that you find this useful. If you would like to translate these materials, please email [email protected] to access the original non-pdf files.
