Kids / Teens programs

Kids
Do you offer any child and adolescent or parenting support?
  • Yes! We will have an experienced child and adolescent counselor with us, who is well versed in concerns global workers’ encounter. If you are interested to address any specific concerns in this area, you will be able to address them in the upcoming survey. For any additional information you may contact Melissa Warner at melissam.warner@gmail.com.
  • Your afternoons will be open for the most part, prepare for that open space with your family. The counseling/debriefing sessions will be scheduled during this time as will childcare during your specific sessions.
  • We would like parents to complete this form for each of their children. This information is highly helpful to our Children's Program team in providing quality care for the kids. Below is the link to the Child Profile Form. Parents, please complete this form for each child, in advance of the event, so that we can prepare to care well for their kids: https://forms.office.com/r/zhTqmUYv6w

Debriefing

Debrief
There will be two reflection/debriefing sessions hosted by professional debriefers from Alongside and MedSend: Barnabas: Barney Davis, MD; Jim Ritchie, MD; Charlie Schaefer, PhD; Frauke Schaefer, MD: Barney Davis, MD; Scott Hicks, DMin, LCSW; Jim Ritchie, MD; Pastoral care and Spiritual Direction will also be available. Child Counselor: Melissa Warner.
What will the reflection/debriefing look like?
  • Every couple or single will receive two sessions; one during the first half, and one in the second half of the program.
  • The first reflective session will be about your work experience in your environment, the highlights and challenges with an opportunity to process your challenges, especially those that still affect you in some way.
  • The second reflection/debriefing time can be used to go deeper in any area addressed during the first time, or to reflect on how the topics of the seminars play out in your life, and what you may personally need or want going forward.
  • We will send out a link with a brief survey to understand more about your hopes and needs for the debriefing (adults and child debriefing), pastoral care, and spiritual direction, when the time comes closer.
