WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Credentialed persons who are due to take the advanced Healthy Boundaries 201 training. WDC requires all credentialed persons to receive healthy boundaries training every three years, or within the first year of ministry for those who have not received training previously.
WHERE: Online, via Zoom (A link will be emailed to registrants prior to training.)
WHEN: October 13, 2020, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm (Register by October 6, please!)
We affirm that this training is crucial to effective ministry in our conference. As you are aware, the healthy use of power and recognition of the misuse of power are important facets of Christian ministry. Ways to stay healthy in ministry are to manage personal boundaries well, engage in regular self-care, and be aware of when you are most at risk of misconduct. These topics and more will be discussed. Training will be done in the FaithTrust Institute model of prevention of clergy sexual misconduct.
The training will include large and small group discussions, viewing DVD clips, listening to presentations, active response, and journaling. Healthy Boundaries 201 includes a different module every three years, and highlights a different topic. So each time you are due for a refresher, the focus will be on a different ministry challenge, such as duel relationships, financial boundaries, ethical social media engagement, and more.
Each registrant will receive the “Healthy Boundaries 201: Beyond Basics” workbook. If you already have a copy from a previous training or if you prefer to purchase your own digital version, you can register at a reduced rate (see below). Digital workbooks can be purchased at: https://store.faithtrustinstitute.org/pages/e-books.
Cost for WDCers: $50 (WDC provides workbook.) / $45 (Provide your own workbook.)
