Understanding boundaries can help us manage the difficulties inherent in the role of clergy or spiritual teacher. Knowledge of what is appropriate, what is not, and whether an action is in the best interest of congregants or students can help us avoid possible boundary violations.
Healthy Boundaries 201 – Beyond Basics is part two of a two-part series designed to increase the awareness of the needs for healthy boundaries, illustrate the impact of healthy boundaries in promoting effective ministry, and provide guidelines for developing appropriate boundaries and necessary self-care strategies.
This “201” Healthy Boundaries training is aimed at clergy who have already completed a basic course in this Annual Conference, or an equivalent course elsewhere. After reviewing foundational concepts, the day will cover a few special topics in depth, with much time devoted to discussion of real life situations. To meet the eight hour conference requirement while allowing for lunch and breaks, an hour of preparation will be assigned to those registered two weeks ahead of time.
All clergy who desire to receive an appointment must complete 8 hours of Healthy Boundaries Trainings during the 2013-2016 quadrennium.
