Boundaries, Power and Well-Being: Approaches for Healthy Leaders and Congregants
Presented by Linda Crockett, Director of Safe Communities
A strong understanding and practice of sexual ethics create a congregational space where both leaders and congregants are valued and respected. When boundaries are violated, church becomes a place of confusion and betrayal, instead of hope and joy. Open discussion and a firm understanding of what sexual ethics mean for oneself and others is a required framework for a healthy congregation.
The Workshop will address:
-What do sexual ethics look like in relation to adults, youth, and children?
-What boundaries are life-giving to my congregants?
-What boundaries are life-giving to me?
-What are the power dynamics involved in sexual ethics?
-What does abuse of power look like in the church?
-What is my role as an observer of sexual ethics violations, as one who they are reported to, or as one who experiences them? What steps can I take and what resources are available to me?
