Unexpected Pregnancy Counseling Training

Author: Angela Bermudez

Facing an unexpected pregnancy can be one of the most difficult challenges that a person can encounter. In facing that challenge, a person, whether a woman or a man, may reach out to someone else with questions on what to do or where to go. The person to whom they reach out could be you.
On Saturday, April 5, 2014, Ellen Sommer, MS, will conduct a training session on how to positively support and respond to someone facing an unexpected pregnancy. Whether in the dorm room, over the phone, or in the coffee shop, the skills and techniques that you will learn during this session will equip you to effectively listen to, advise, and direct someone to helpful, life-affirming resources that will help and support that person as she or he faces this challenge.
The event will be on Saturday, April 5, 2014, from 10:30 am-1:30 pm in the LaFortune Notre Dame Room. Break and Lunch will be provided. The event is being sponsored by the Center for Ethics and Culture, Notre Dame Right to Life, Life Initiatives, and the Gender Relations Center. To RSVP to the event e-mail abermud1@nd.edu, and specify dietary restrictions.
