Mending the Soul Basic
Mending the Soul's core curriculum; a first-of-its-kind comprehensive approach to understanding and treating every form of abuse.
Mending the Soul’s Basic curriculum is the starting point, and is our foundational healing model. It offers men and women impacted by physical, sexual, spiritual, verbal, neglect, and other forms of abuse a safe place for transformative healing within a trauma-informed, theologically sound nurturing community.
As a participant in a Mending the Soul Basic small group, healing awaits you within a safe and confidential small group community where peer survivors find the freedom to share their stories, often, for the very first time. You will experience freedom and encouragement here, as you make your way through the biblically grounded and research based psychologically integrated textbook and companion workbook. Please visit our FAQ section for more details on how Mending the Soul “Basic” small groups operate.

Before you begin a Mending the Soul small support group, your facilitator will ask you to fill out an intake form and interview. Your facilitator can answer all your questions and help you know if you are ready for a group.
Mending the Soul support groups are held in any safe, private space free from interruptions and/or distractions: home, church, or community center.
A typical group meeting lasts two hours. The group commits to start and finish on time each week. Participants are also responsible for completing their homework (one workbook chapter per week) prior to coming to group. This takes an average of two hours per week to complete.
Due to the nature of the support group, our recommendation is that men and women meet separately. We also recommend that facilitators are the same gender as participants.
