Clergy Health and Wellness: Clergy Boundary Awareness Training
The Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences of the UCC offer Boundary Training regularly throughout the year with a focus on clergy health and wellness. No dates have been set for 2023, but a schedule will be announced soon.
Details of our Boundary Training:
Framed through the lens of clergy health and wellness, join in for a not-so-typical clergy boundary training. Through both presentations and small group collaborative learning, participants will focus on several key areas for balance and wellbeing in their ministry. Areas of focus include:
- Dealing with difficult people
- Tools for mindfulness and spiritual disciplines
- Compassion fatigue, burnout and the effects of secondary traumatic stress
- Financial wellness and financial planning
- Preventing and responding to harm and harassment
- Working through stressful and changing times
This training fulfills the Boundary Training requirement for maintaining UCC ministerial standing in all Associations of the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences.
Once you have completed this registration you will receive a confirmation email with further details about the day’s event. Please check your spam folder for confirmation emails as well.
Learn at Your Own Pace: Online Learning Options
Recognizing that creating and maintaining professional boundaries is an ongoing skill over the course of a clergy person’s ministry, Clergy Boundary awareness training is a requirement in all Associations for maintaining ministerial standing. Ministers unable to attend zoom trainings above may use an online, asynchronous training (listed to the right) to fulfill the Boundary Training requirement for maintaining UCC ministerial standing in Associations of the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences.
Once you have the course, you will receive a certificate of completion and that should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to your clergy file.
