All of us experience pain in different ways at different times in our lives. For most of us, pain is a common experience that we don’t want. In fact, we go to great lengths to try to avoid it. But when we find we can’t avoid it, most of us need help in dealing with it. In this course, Dr. Alice Mathews and Dr. Karen Mason explain several types of interventions, which help us understand how we can come alongside people in pain and minister to them more effectively.

This has to be one of the best courses I have taken this far with Our Daily Bread. I started out listening for direction and insight on how to assist others through their pain. I ended up with a wealth of introductory knowledge about how to deal with my own pain. This course ministered to me personally as well as provides tools to assist others in my ministry.Pamela

This course, Ministering to People in Pain shows how very caring Dr. Alice Mathews and Dr. Karen Mason [are. They] have explained several types of interventions, which helped me understand how I can come alongside people in pain and minister to them effectively. The video, the course printout, and listening to the course lecture, really helped me learn more effectively about ministering to people in pain. I really enjoyed listening and learning and looking up different scriptures in the Bible that related to caring for people in emotional pain. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to go deeper in learning how to minister to others.Maria
As a new pastor, I have a better understanding on how to help people who are in pain. This course gave me a lot great material to use as I move forward in my ministry. I will better understand people who are in pain now. I will also be more effective in my approach. Great course.Jeffrey
