LifeLine East Rand (Ekurhuleni) facilitates emotional wellness in, for and with thousands of individuals and communities throughout the Ekurhuleni Municipal Region. LifeLine Ekurhuleni believes that every person has innate strengths and abilities to transcend their life challenges and crises. These innate abilities and strengths are also a powerful motivation to bring about change in other peoples’ lives and in the process impact on success.
Enabling this process off self-awareness and learning, in order to empower our human potential, is the goal of the LifeLine Personal Growth course
The relationship with ourselves is the most important one and creates the depth and quality of our interaction with other people in our circle. Learning to accept, care for and develop that which lies within us, results in continually improving communication with others.
The Personal Growth course is designed to look at how we relate to others and ourselves. It offers opportunities for greater understanding.
Topics covered include:
Life pressures & coping mechanisms
Trust and self- disclosure
The spiritual dimension of our lives
Personal Value System
Overcoming prejudice and discrimination
Bereavement & loss
Relationships in all their forms
Giving and receiving feedback
The Personal Growth course is based on the principles of experiential learning and participants work in small groups, each one facilitated by a trained and experienced LifeLine counsellor. We run two separate Personal Growth courses during February and March 2016: one in the day from 9am – 12pm, the other in the evening from 7pm – 10pm. Each consists of ten three-hour sessions which comprise a variety of methodologies to provide optimum learning. As each trainee has a unique contribution to make to the group, attendance at ALL sessions is essential.
The cost for the Personal Growth course is R2 500 per person, with a R200 discount for bookings made before the end of November 2015.
