November 2016 Rwanda Institute

A group of five National Certified Counselors attended the Rwanda institute in Kigali, Rwanda. The institute was held in partnership with the Global Engagement Institute (GEI) from November 5–13, 2016. Co-leading the institute were Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) master trainers Dr. LaVerne Hanes-Stevens, owner of New Seasons Counseling, Coaching & Consulting, LLC and president of The Joseph Alliance, Inc., and Dr. Callie Scott, owner of Life’s Journey Counseling Services. Participating counselors had the opportunity to engage in an MHF training of trainers and also teach the MHF curriculum with Rwandan colleagues. In addition to the MHF trainings, participants also visited locations such as the Nyamirambo Women's Center and the Kigali Memorial Center to learn about Rwanda’s history, cultural background and mental health strengths and challenges.
