Autumn 12 Week Certificate Course Human Psycho-spiritual Development & Community Building (5SACert)
Leaders, evangelizers and facilitators in spiritual and religious communities face a complex task, one requiring a great depth of understanding of human behaviour in addition to a solid grounding in the process of spiritual growth. True compassionate leadership is not possible without these. A facilitator of community life is often required to understand and resolve the individual’s emotional pains and troubles that, if left untended, will tear at the fabric of the community’s spiritual life.
The special human development skills necessary in guiding their communities or parishes are learned and practised in these unique, foundational courses that complement the administrative and business skills offered in other educational institutes.
Based on Founder/Director Kofler’s core principle, “Who I am as a person determines who I am as a leader”, the Diploma and Certificate Human Development Courses centre on developing the psychological, emotional and spiritual maturity of the leaders and facilitators themselves. Participants in these courses learn, or improve, the professional skills necessary by actively practising them among themselves, participating in facilitated group workshops and individual learning sessions. The courses are practical rather than academic; a good understanding of spoken English is essential.
These courses are planned to serve the needs of Bishops, Major Superiors, Parish Priests, Superiors, Head Teachers, Senior Nursing Staff, Chaplains, Rectors, and Novice Masters and Mistresses, Members of Formation teams, Pastoral Workers, evangelizers and leaders of lay communities.
Note: These courses are not intended for those with problems or needing intensive counselling or therapy.
