2.7 Putting it in Context Copy
Your role is:
- Prayerful preparation, and effective use of prayer with the person
- Being a safe place to listen without having all the answers
- Letting the traumatized person set the pace and depth
- Knowing your own triggers, competencies, and limitations; “do no harm”
- Knowing when and where to refer; your role vs the role of specialists (construction and cooking analogies)
- Validate the person’s experience and give non-clichéd hope for healing!
