Participants attending this workshop will benefit from understanding the background by which the Hospital Sisters
Health System Eastern Wisconsin Division, Silver Lake College Theology Department and the Diocese of Green Bay Emmaus and Diaconate came to develop this innovative training program. The workshop will demonstrate how the Common Qualifications and Competencies and Code of Ethics for Spiritual Care Professionals were instrumental in developing the educational component of the Pastoral Skills training. Finally, participants will hear how the impact of this training has enhanced the students’ current ministry roles and future ministry goals.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Identify key strategies for innovative partnership.
- Understand how a highly integrated partnership between academic, diocesan and health systems can lead to a
pre-cursor to/compliment of a clinical pastoral education.
- Verbalize how a partnership for a Pastoral Skills training program can benefit self-discernment in ministry,
diaconate training, Emmaus lay formation training and health care ministry settings.
