Center for Women’s Ministries will conduct Basic Peer Counselor Training beginning in September.
The 14-week training is one of the requirements to be a volunteer peer counselor with the center.
Sessions will be from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays at the center, 104½ E. Second St., Seymour. Director Deborah Ralston will be the teacher.
The center was founded in 1989 in Bloomington and has more than 30 sites throughout the world. The Jackson County center is in its 17th year and has served numerous women in Jackson and surrounding counties with issues such as depression, abuse, anger and loss of a loved one.
The center is a nondenominational Christian volunteer organization promoting emotional and spiritual healing through creating an environment where nonjudgmental listening, sharing, encouragement and prayer support can take place.
