The Des Moines Pastoral Counseling Center Leadership and Spiritual Life will provide Ethical Boundary Training for clergy and leaders within the Southeastern Iowa Synod-ELCA on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM via Zoom with an hour break for lunch.
What are healthy boundaries? Why are they important? What is the difference between boundary crossing and boundary violation? Beginning with an understanding of the nature of ministry, this workshop will focus on the broad range of professional boundaries that include but consist of much more than prevention of sexual misconduct. Some time will be devoted to concerns related to pandemic.
It is expected for rostered ministers who are currently serving to complete boundaries training every three years. These trainings do not need to be synod sponsored. If you have completed a boundaries training that is not synod sponsored, please send the documentation of completion to [email protected]
