WEDNESDAY—OCTOBER—

 

 

 lot of us believe we can multitask, but research indicates we half-task, meaning we split our attention between our screens and the people beside us. This is one reason we believe that listening well has become increasingly challenging.

“So we asked ourselves, how might we make a difference, and Listen Up! is our answer," commented Bill Strom, board chair of Telecare Crisis & Caring Line, Abbotsford.

 

While Telecare has been providing emotional support on the lines since 1989 with over 2000 calls per year, Listen Up! is new.

 

“We designed it for people who help people, and for anyone seeking to support friends and family,” Strom added. The workshop integrates psychological research, counselling skills, biblical perspective, and insights into challenging issues.

Attendees can expect a lively environment, engaging curriculum, videos, role plays, activities, and discussion.

 

One attendee said, “I feel like I now have the right kit and resources to listen to people with an open heart.”

 

Organizations that wish to sponsor the workshop on location may get in contact through the Telecare website here.

 

Telecare is a registered non-profit under the BC Society Act.

The next Listen Up! workshop is Saturday, November 3, 2018, at Northview Community Church in Abbotsford, 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
