Tom's 1st Seminar @ Open Door Church

Saturday, December 29, 2007

Today was the final day of Tom's 1st seminar at our church. He taught every Saturday for 8 weeks without a break!

Here he is with Dima, an excellent translator!

Tom is planning to do more teaching times at our church and at the BLTC. We need to sit down and make out a schedule for 2008. This seminar went very well and was well received by all who attended.

The themes Tom focused on were:
The Family as a System
Understanding Shame
Overcoming Shame
4 weeks on Character Development
Stage one: Bonding and Attachment
Stage two: Boundaries and Autonomy
Stage three: Accepting both Good and Bad in Myself and Other People
Stage four: Resolving the Parent/Child Position (Becoming a Responsible Adult)

Tom has discovered the need for teaching parenting skills, communication skills and personal boundaries are universal topics and these topics are all on tap for 2008!!


  1. I would love to sit through that seminar myself! It sounds great.

    Tom is looking a little Hawaiian with that "Aloha" shirt! He would fit right in over here. : )

  2. Sounds like a pretty heavy seminar. It would be great to sit through something with so much depth. I get tired of all the fluff we get around here.
