The purpose of the workshop is to train religious educators, ministers, and lay leaders to minister to children with special challenges and insure their successful inclusion into Unitarian Universalist congregations. (Although I'm guessing the information could be useful for other faiths as well. Get in touch with the contact people at the email addresses below.)
Topics will include assessment methods, teaching strategies, sensitivity training, hands-on training activities, and discussions concerning pastoral and congregational care.
Developmental psychologist Sally Patton will lead the workshop, which costs $50 per person or $200 for a delegation of 4 or more people from a single congregation. Lunch will be provided.
The workshop will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalists Church of Silver Spring (10309 New Hampshire Ave). For more information, please contact Becky Brooks at email@example.com or Reverend Ellen Jennings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
