Resilience

What sort of tools can we use to help us function better in ministry? We will focus on developing resilience, self-care strategies, time and diary management, and how to keep healthy boundaries. The risks of overworking will be discussed, as well as how to respond to anxiety and stressors in ministry. How can we maintain mental good health?

Speaker: Revd Julian Bowers was ordained in 1972.  Periods of church ministry followed in England, and he also worked for nearly five years for CMS as a school chaplain in Sri Lanka. He holds a theology degree and has a Master's degree in Psychoanalytic Theory and Analytical Psychology at Goldsmiths College.

Supporting People with Mental Health Issues

How can we support people we come across with mental health issues? Using a mixture of presentation, discussion, and small group work, we will consider our own response of these situations, when a specialist might be helpful, some of the differences between mental health care and the role of clergy/pastoral workers, and our own needs when providing effective pastoral care.

Dr Rachel Freeth is a NHS psychiatrist and a counsellor. She devises and delivers training on subjects related to psychiatry and mental health. Her website is www.rachelfreeth.com
