The third day of the TOTs in Marriage Counselling was set apart for the basic skills in marriage counselling. The participants have learnt how to build a family that affirms security, significance and self-worth of every individual in the family. Communication, compassion, confidentiality and competence being major qualities that were postulated, the relational skills, attending skills and listening skills were taught that would help the counsellor to process healing in a systematic manner. The participants were engaged in the process of evolving a curriculum blue print that would be adopted by these participants in their training sessions.  In the closing session the participants have given their feedback affirming the importance of having Pre-marital counselling   and marriage accompaniment programs. Equipping the pastors with counselling skills was appreciated.  The third day of the TOTs in Marriage Counselling was set apart for the basic skills in marriage counselling.
