Boundaries and Ethical Concerns for Clergy in Pastoral Care
Thursday, April 12, 2018, 09:00am - 03:00pm

Spend a day reflecting on how we can best hold the hearts that are entrusted to us as chaplains…both those we serve and our own. We will enter into a discussion about ethics and boundaries: emotional, spiritual and professional. Stay safe and care for yourself while you care for others.

Speaker: Joretta Marshall Browse for more information about Joretta.

The integrity of care is embodied in the ways that pastoral counselors, chaplains, and other pastoral caregivers develop relationships. While some talk about workshops such as this as “boundary training,” on this occasion we will reflect specifically on what it is at stake, theologically, as we develop ethical relationships in the context of offering and receiving care. Pastoral care specialists often find themselves in situations that are especially vulnerable and intimate for persons with whom they care. This workshop will focus on the importance of recognizing power in these relationships, walking with care around unseen vulnerabilities, and reflecting together on the principals of ethical practices for pastoral care specialists. Participants are invited to bring their case studies, questions, and convictions to our conversations together.
