Lesson 11

The last time I councilled someone was yesturday, so it is fresh on my mind. 

A good friend of mine lost her mother, and I haven't seen her in 10 years.  I first dropped her a card at her Mother's house where she was staying to let her know I cared and was there for her.  At the service I took her
aside for about 10 minutes to pray with her although she is not a christian I believed it was a help to her.  After that I made an appointment to meet with her at a later date. 

I feel by getting with her in a few days all the activity at the service would not interfer with our conversation so much. 

Lesson 10

1.  I am not one of touch as my past has led me to a place where my space is mine, although I am working on touch as time goes by.
2. I think my plan would be to greet the person in a welcoming way, my smile say millions.  After that I may ask if they would like to hold hands in prayer,  I respect rights of individuals.  When I am out  in my community
I usually wait for the other person to make the first move on hugs and contact.  I plan to always respect the rights of other.

about lesson 9

The first lesson of 9 is really 8
Sorry about that

Lesson 9

I have learned I need to be more attentive and not judgemental.. To have all my facts and references available to help in situatuions.  To listen with empathy and compassion.  My body
language means alott also need to listen to body language of my counselee's.

Lesson 9

1.  I think availability and honesty is two major components to building trust in your community.
2.  Get out in the community and help where you can around my area the best places to accomplish this would be at festivals and the parks, community meetings   and my church.
3.  I am already a mandatory reporter for child abuse because I drive a School Bus. I report on domestic abuse and child neglect cases.

Lesson 7

Being a tourist town we have a lot of RV Parks, the one we have here in town also has a community building.  I at one time lived in this park and often thought of how nice it would be to have services there on Sundays.  I think
every one who visits the area have to go to one of the bigger churches.

Lesson 6

1. We don't have any chaplains in this area.  I do know of one minister that goes to the jail to minister, he only does this on his own time and not for emergency situations.

2.When a disaster happens the Red Cross and Salvation Army Ministers and Social Workers step in to access each situation and help where they can.
