Genees een Gekwetst Hart
Thank you for your interest in learning more about the Heal a Hurting Heart (HHH) children's Dutch curriculum.
The structure of this Heal a Hurting Heart Training and children's Curriculum follows the Bible Society Healing Hearts Club, a Bible-based Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) healing programme for children who have experienced war, abuse, or a similar human or natural disaster.
Their original programme was written for the children of DR Congo and we are grateful to be able to follow the same structure and guidelines establishing a Caribbean/CARICOM version and expanding the African version.
Each of the lessons includes a Bible Story, following the life of Joseph and a comparable 'real-life' and 'culturally sensitive' children's story about the experiences of a family who live through a devastating hurricane or flood, so children can see the effects of trauma, learn how to work through their emotional and spiritual pain, and experience God’s love for them.
The Story Book features a family and especially a little boy, who learns about healing through the words of the Bible. Parts of the story book "And Puppy' which accompanies the curriculum was written and developed by the women and children of Dominica following hurricane Maria in 2017.
Activities, such as drawing a picture of happy and painful memories, help them understand what they’re feeling so they can deal with their trauma and eventually work through it. Dance, art, drama and play therapy is used to heal the broken hearts.
The Pattern of Ministry follows the same pattern as Kids In Ministry International because most of our teachers Regionally and Internationally, especially in Africa, have been trained in this excellent Children's Ministry, which following the 'Tabernacle Pattern of Ministry.'
This English Hurricane and Flood HHH programme focuses on the English speaking islands of the Caribbean and CARICOM including this Dutch curriculum for Suriname flood survivors.
