Cooperation with congregation
Cooperation with Congregation
TAMK's pastors are Merja Halivaara and Jussi Houttu. They are available for students and staff for example in the following situations:
• Confidential discussions
• Wellbeing at work, student wellbeing, overall wellbeing
• Relationship counselling
• Ceremonies, confirmation classes
• Conflict situations and crises (at personal or community level)
• Supervision of work
• Tutor education
• Trips, events
• Lessons and lectures (for example grief, working with dying patients, time management, and values)
In addition, peer groups on, for example, grief and divorce issues, and lectures on relationship issues for adults are organised in cooperation with student health care.
Life is a journey. Sometimes the end of the road is missing, or the road seems to have a dead end. Or the grief is overwhelming. Talking helps. Discussion may open up new possibilities or change the view. Help is available for you.
