About the event
This session takes a short tour through some of the scriptures that Dr. Cath has discovered as she has walked through tough seasons in pastoring, counselling, leading, studying, and teaching. She has found that some of the stories make her stop and think about whether God would do the same things for us when we struggle as we want to do for each other. Through a biblical example, we will consider how to balance sensitive care with "grit development". We will also cover a few other scriptures that have helped her to develop lifestyle choices intended to maintain her own mental health. Dr. Cath believes that the Bible is our best toolkit for mental health. Our tour through some of its' principles will certainly not be exhaustive, but hopefully helpful. It is intended to provide a brief look at what she has learned as a child of God who feels deeply about mental health and helping people who struggle with this.
Dr. Cath has been exercising her gifts in Pastoral Care & Counselling for more than 30 years. She served in various pastoral positions including worship, women, children, and young adults. She worked in leadership in camp ministry for many years, and later served as a clinical counsellor, Mental Health Therapist, and Addictions Counsellor. During these times, she provided adjunct teaching foxar Ambrose University College. Cath is thrilled to be able to fulfill her passion of teaching and mentoring upcoming leaders, helping them through academia successfully and on to the work that the Lord made them to do!
