OUR STORY – Finding Hope Beyond Grief
The AEFFYS partnered with ADM Anglican Deaconess Ministries to deliver training across the Eastern States to help women in local churches to become trainers in this field. The focus is on firstly dealing with their own Grief, Loss and Trauma and then helping others to do the same. The program grew out of workshops done by Keren Masters and Francine Riches which had a big impact in WA. This 2 day therapeutic program involves coming to terms with issues and prayerfully moving forward. A component is Art therapy which provides a safe space to process these matters in a culturally relevant context. The ladies are planning to progress it to a National program to help people from grass roots to help in their communities.
