Learning to Stay Safe with Others in our Dealings with Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Boundaries
March 23, 2019, 9:30am-4:30pm | Olympia, WA
The Washington Pastoral Counseling Association is proud to offer this critical continuing education workshop for clergy and others in caring professions.
CEUs: 6 CEU hours for Counselors & MFTs, Nurses, Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, Clergy & other professionals. This workshop meets the denominational requirement of the United Methodist Church.
Program Purpose and Goals:
— Become more intentional about safe boundaries in all of our daily interactions,
— Increase participant awareness, within a respectful and responsive community, of helping professionals’ core needs for support and self-care,
— Explore historic issues related to boundaries, starting in 400BC (The Hippocratic Oath),
— Learn how to more effectively support difficult people using Motivational Interviewing,
— Hone existing listening, reflection and encouraging skills
All attendees are expected to prepare, in writing, a case in which they or another violated a boundary, and be prepared to discuss what worked, what didn’t work, and what they would do differently.
