Genesis Counselor Training @ Tierra Nueva

Genesis Process

In this 40-hour Genesis counselor training, we'll explore the roots of destructive patterns that keep others—and ourselves—trapped in cycles of bondage: workaholism, food, anxiety, codependency, sex, shopping, alcohol, porn, substances, and other self-comforts.

We'll tackle questions like: How do our compulsions work in the brain? Why is it so hard to get free, despite our promises and resolve? How do false beliefs contribute to our stuck behaviors? How do destructive patterns get started? What's the role of trusting relationships in healing? How can we get free? And how can we best help those who are struggling?

This full Genesis training is designed for those who are interested in leading Genesis Change Groups in churches or those who desire to do Genesis counseling one-on-one with clients. The training will be completed over the course of these dates:

Saturday June 2 (9 am—5 pm) and Sunday June 3 (8 am—3 pm) Saturday June 9 (9 am—5 pm) and Sunday June 10 (8 am—3 pm)

This is a facilitated video course. For homework, participants will watch videos prepared by Michael Dye (the author of Genesis), and come together for sessions on the above dates for expanded material prepared by Alan and Amy Muia (co-directors of New Earth Recovery).
In group sessions we’ll go deeper with the video content, provide space for questions, and most important—practice the Genesis tools and counseling skills together.

Attendance on all dates is required. Following the Sunday sessions,
all are welcome to stay for the 4:30 pm church service at our host, Tierra Nueva. Bring your own lunch; snacks are provided.
