Serving Congregations with a History of Clergy Misconduct

Summer/Fall 2020 & Winter/Spring 2021

Registration and more information here:

An exploration of the impact of clergy misconduct on congregations and the unique challenges experienced by ministers and education staff who serve them. The focus throughout is on the pastoral/staff relationship and the unique role afterpastors and afterstaff have in healing misconduct’s betrayal of trust and supporting risk reducing cultural change. Among the questions considered: how to respond to the immediate aftermath of disclosed misconduct; how to address the persistent, chronic difficulties that pervade the culture of a congregation; how to encourage healthy practices and to begin to effect cultural change; and how to navigate reactive and crazy-making interactions typical in relationships with congregants in misconducted congregations.

Additionally an individual consultation, a One-on-One, is scheduled (tba) for each participant. The total time commitment is 20 hours equal to 20 CE credits.
