Working with Difficult Teens

Many catechists are not trained to deal deeply or lengthily with emotional problems, but are often the first to be called on to give some initial and helpful response to the cries of pain from children and teens that they catechise.

A short workshop “Working with Difficult Teens” by Bro. Collin Wee will offer an approach to listening and ministering that is holistic, and integrates spiritual and moral constructs with the psychological. This course is not an in depth study in counselling, but a guide for those who find themselves caught up in the problems of someone else. The objective of this course is not to make a counsellor out of you but to equip you with some fundamental pastoral care skills.
