Group Guidelines

If you choose to go through this course with others in a group, our recommendation would be to do so with people where safety and privacy are already solid and trusted. Each group member must be enrolled in the course to access the material and comply with our Terms of Use policy. We recommend scheduling a minimum of 10 meetings to get through the material. You can watch the videos together and use portions of the Course Journal activities as points of discussion, or complete the questions prior to meeting and share responses together.

It is not recommended to put a brand new group of people together to engage this course unless a skilled leader is at the helm to help navigate any difficult group dynamics that may arise as you seek to establish relationships and trust while also engaging in such personally intensive work.

Course Description

The Healing the Wounded Heart online course, taught by Dr. Dan Allender, is designed to deepen your understanding of the complex issues related to trauma, especially sexual harm. Whether you are a victim of abuse, a professional caregiver, or a friend, parent, or partner of someone who has been abused—everyone needs to address the heartache of sexual harm and grow in the hope that it does not have the final word. Healing is possible, and when lived out well, it is profound.

This is a self-directed course, with all videos and content available immediately upon enrollment to view and engage at a pace that fits your schedule. It includes nine lessons, each complete with video segments totaling about 45 minutes of teaching per lesson followed by thoughtful journal and reflection questions. Our recommendation is to go through approximately one lesson per week, and plan for a minimum of 2-3 hours to complete each lesson — in one sitting or spread out over several days — to provide the optimum space and time to absorb the content and fully engage the material.

This course invites you to name the impact and internal war of abuse with greater clarity and to walk the path of healing. To better help you incorporate the teaching and stories into your own work of healing, each lesson also includes reflection and journal exercises intended to help you explore your story and participate in a process of redemption that leads to greater freedom, power, and joy.
