Seattle Presbytery Workshop: Trends and Skills in Christian Pastoral Care

Presenter: Rev Dr Lynne Baab, author of Nurturing Hope: Christian Pastoral Care in the Twenty-first Century
In the past few decades, Christian pastoral care has changed in many ways. This workshop will provide an overview of seven current trends in pastoral care  – including pastoral care teams, pastoral care in the wider community, and pastoral care across ethnic differences  – and four skills that are essential for caring in our time: understanding stress, listening skills, spiritual practices, and resilience.
