Deciphering Personality Disorders in the Church and Beyond: a two-part webinar with Sue Magrath, LMHC
January 20, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$35.00
All clergy have known people who make every encounter a struggle. In this webinar learn about the personality disorders that show-up in your churches and how to deal with them effectively. While we will be addressing clinical material, the emphasis is not on diagnosis, but rather on recognizing patterns of behavior and understanding the motivations behind them.
In a subsequent webinar, attendees will be able to consult with Ms. Magrath after having time to assimilate the learning from the initial session.
The objectives of this webinar are to:
- Identify the five personality disorders most likely to be present in your congregations and understand the origins of those disorders.
- Study the basic principles of assertiveness and how to use them in your church.
- Develop an awareness of the personalities to which you are most vulnerable, based on your personal history.
- Learn to implement appropriate boundaries that allow for healthy self-care without taking away from your family or your congregation.
