Biblical Brain Rehabilitation Certification Trainings provide the ability for you as somebody in ministry to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, relational, and spiritual problems that are common to those for whom you care. An understanding of brain function, how to improve it, and the spiritual issues related to it are necessary for you to minister in a way that leads to comprehensive recovery and deepened relationship with God.
This training will allow you to provide effective treatment from a Biblical perspective that avoids the legitimate concerns about psychology, counseling, and the problematic philosophies behind them. People will recover from emotional problems like anger, depression, anxiety, and panic; behavioral problems like addiction, abusive behavior, criminal behavior, and irresponsibility; cognitive problems like ADHD, memory problems, speech difficulties, and learning disabilities; physical problems like headaches, ear ringing, sensitivity to light and sound; and experience a deepened relationship with God, all from utilizing the neuroscience and Biblical principles that come from this training and certification.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Pastors, ministers, youth ministers, teachers, coaches, and anybody who wants to minister biblically and effectively to others.
WHAT YOU WILL GAIN: Training and skills to help people's brains function without difficulty and at the level of their ability. You will learn the techniques necessary to achieve this goal, and upon successful completion of the training will be certified to provide this to those to whom you minister (professionally or otherwise). You will also gain an understanding of how the brain interacts with the heart to affect spiritual life and your relationship with God and others.
TRAINING DETALS: This is a 2-day intensive training, but is interactive and fun. You will be able to provide your perspective and learn not only from the trainer but from each other. You will learn the latest research and neuroscience information about how the brain functions in general, as well as how to assess an individual's brain function and treat it effectively. The information is presented in non-technical language that is easy to understand and apply to people in your ministry or in your life. Training topics include:
- Brain Function
- Assessing individual brain function
- Fueling the brain and achieving brain recovery
- Misperceptions of identity
- Correcting identity misperceptions
- Brain and heart recovery
- Achieving trust in God and well-being
