A COURSE TO SUPPORT MARRIAGES
PCUK have been working collaboratively with Marriage Resource to develop an adapted version of the Resourcing Pastoral Carers Course that centers on supporting and caring for marriages. The core elements of the Resourcing Pastoral Carers Course remain but some of the examples and exercises have been adapted to make them more relevant and helpful to those carers who specifically support couples and marriages.
If you would like to know more about the course, run a course in your location or become a trainer to deliver the course, please be in touch with the director of PC
