Good Offices Right Relationship Specialization

Good Offices Right Relationship Specialization




Members of the UUMA are invited to apply to be part of this ministry of restoration.  Our commitment is to create a dynamic, diverse team to help us develop this way of caring for one another.  We encourage applications from members who are committed to the values of justice, integrity and healing.  Corps members will have skills and experience to bring to the work and will be prepared to go deeper in their learning as part of a community of practice in these areas: 


  • Restorative practices

  • Trauma informed care

  • Power dynamics and power analysis

  • Identity development theory and faith formation stages

  • Family systems theory

  • Conflict transformation skills

Appointments to the corps will be for renewable two-year terms.  



The Good Offices Right Relationship Guides will be expected to:


  • Complete the required introductory training before accepting any referrals.

  • Approach the work as praxis; corps members will commit to meet monthly for reflection, consultation and continuous learning about the theory, art and practice of working toward right relationship.

  • Function in a collaborative manner; in some instances more than one Good Offices person will be needed to work with members in crisis or conflict. 

  • Respond to any inquiry requesting support in a timely manner and engage in discernment about their own capacity before accepting any referral.

  • Submit required contact reports in a timely manner.



The Good Offices Right Relationship Guides will be selected by the UUMA’s Director of Ministries for Collegial Care and the Good Offices Coordinating Team member with the portfolio for supporting the Right Relationship specialization.  Please contact Rev. Melissa Carvill Ziemer with any questions.
