ACROSS Children’s Ministry includes trauma healing and training of Sunday school teachers. Techniques for trauma healing include Walking With Wounded Children (WWWC) course, which deals with trauma identification, the impact of trauma, and ways to help traumatised children. Best practices include helping children tell their stories through play, listening actively, and responding with personal testimonies and Bible stories. Refugee children, most of whom had fled in fear for their lives, are very much in need of this kind of help.
ACROSS also trains Sunday school teachers, not only to teach the Bible, but also to connect with children as friends and “walk with wounded children.”
