Godly Play Core Training in Hobart, Tasmania

A three day intensive core training is being planned – probably 22-24 April 2020 in Hobart, Tasmania. In this intense three-day course, participants are immersed in Godly Play practice, learn and tell a story for supportive feedback.

We welcome back trainers Carolyn Handley and Jeanette Acland, who are highly experienced and accredited trainers, who will be supported by Catherine Sandric and the CIE team. The trainers will work with the group to provide information and experience of the three genres of stories in Godly Play, the role of the storyteller, the role of the doorperson, the Godly Play space, materials, response time, spirituality of the child, forming and maintaining a respectful story circle community, the history and practice of Godly Play and much more.

The core training required to achieve accreditation as a storyteller/doorperson takes three days (a minimum of 21 hours training). All three days and each session must be attended to achieve accreditation.

Suitable for teachers, chaplains and clergy, parish workers, community workers, those employed in hospitals, age care or correctional services; and those hoping to use Godly Play in the life of their family.

Time: 8.30am to 5pm each day
