These resources are provided to churches to equip people interested in Health and Pastoral Care Ministry teams to be informed friends with a person living with chronic conditions. Click here to learn more. It is important that all people training to become peer educators or facilitators of the ‘Informed Friend’ program first complete the ‘Still Me Informed Friend’ training.
This material aims to facilitate friendships with the many people in our community living with chronic conditions who are in great need of ‘Informed Friends’. The resources are divided into sections:
The Facilitator Manual steps you through how to prepare for and run your ‘Becoming an informed friend’ workshop. It has information on presenting to a group, a full script for the PowerPoint slides if you require it. The comprehensive detail is provided so peer educators can be sure of the message each PowerPoint slide is meant to convey. It is not a script to be recited. We encourage you to say it in your own words, to adapt the material (add graphics etc) and personalise the program without altering the intent of the content.
Everything you need to teach the workshop including PowerPoint, scenarios, teaching charts, guided meditation script and handouts.
