What is Overcome Academy?
Overcome Academy is an online course that trains you and your team how to respond with confidence to hurting friends and family.
Think of it this way – not everyone can be a heart surgeon, but we can all learn CPR to save a life. The same is true when it comes to helping those who have faced a traumatic experience.
While very few of us are called to be certified counselors, everyone should have the basic training needed to respond to someone who is dealing with tragedy, mental health struggles, abuse or trauma – especially Christians.
You'll have access to the entire Overcome Academy training system through our MyREBOOT online portal.
Five Session Videos
You'll watch training videos (a total of two hours) divided into five sessions to walk you through the entire course and open the door for discussion among your team.
Our companion workbook contains over 80 pages of techniques, tools and resources to help you reach and respond to hurting people.
Printed Workbooks Available A La Carte
If you'd like to get your leaders together and complete the training as an in-person event, printed workbooks are available for just $10 per book.
