This course, Courageous, Challenging Conversations: Most challenges and stresses in living as well as joy arise from the array of our personal and professional relationships. Getting to the heart of a minister’s interactions and conversations with clients, we will address perhaps the most challenging part for a minister which is having conversations with congregants/clients with those subjects most people tend to have difficulty with including death, sex, family, relationships, weddings, employment and religion! Our dialogues are not limited to those but will help the students with those and more. We will utilize role-playing/therapeutic theater, and building personal development & communication skills, not infrequently with dashes of levity & humor, to become more skilled communicators and listeners. This is a course for anyone and everyone who has to speak and listen as an integral part of their ministry.
There will be a monthly assignment and a bibliography will be provided.
