Boundary Awareness Training
Community Presbyterian Church
220 Main Street, Chester, New Jersey
Thursday, October 24, 2019
9:30 am to 4 pm
A Workshop Especially for Teaching Elders, But Open to all Church Leaders
Historically, Boundary Awareness workshops focused only on sexual boundaries in ministry. This training will also include:
- Financial boundaries
- Conflict of interest
- Complications of social media.
Why are boundaries so difficult to set and maintain?
The workshop will explore internal and external reasons why this is so difficult, and the ways issues of the self interact with issues of the system.
Finally, the workshop will focus on prevention by helping us examine our own issues, as well as how we are impacted by the system dynamics within our congregations. Special attention will be placed on:
- improved levels of differentiation of self,
- improved emotional intelligence,
- and steps to begin to develop both.
