“Love your neighbour AS YOURSELF” – what did Jesus mean by this and how did he model it? An exploration of practising self-care the Jesus-way

Seminar theme:

The Cost of Caring – recognising and responding to burnout and loss in ministry’

We live in a high stress environment and nowhere more so than when in ministry. This seminar will explore the nature of stress, sources of stress in ministry, responses to stress and tools for the task. We will move on to explore Compassion Fatigue , and take an in depth look at the growing challenge of burnout, its causes, symptoms, recovery and prevention. There will also be an over-view of building resilience in key areas. The session will be interactive with group discussion, case studies and tools for diagnosis and response.
