Basic Training

01/07/2019 - 12/31/2020


This four-week online training forum gives valuable skills, direction and tools to those interested in facilitating Mending the Soul small groups. We will walk through everything from education on basic trauma and story exercises to the nuts and bolts of running a group. Tuition is $135 for new facilitators, discounted to $50 for current facilitators, and scholarships are available! New, prospective facilitators will be required to attend a Mending the Soul group as a participant, pass a background check, and take and pass the online course before receiving certification. All current facilitators who complete this process will receive additional certification from Mending the Soul and will be listed on the Find a Group page. All registrants will need to:

  • Have two character references (including one from your previous Mending the Soul group facilitator, if applicable) complete a reference survey on your behalf

  • Connect to the course through a stable internet connection

  • Have the required course materials: Mending the Soul by Steven Tracy, and Mending the Soul Workbook by Celestia Tracy

  • Plan on setting aside three hours each week at your own schedule to work on the course, engage in discussion points and complete required assignments.
