Boundary Awareness Training

Monday, July 27, 2015

The following Boundary Awareness Training will take place in Albany in November.  For most Associations, this is considered to meet the needs of renewal of the BAT requirement (not the original training required).  Please check with your Association Committee to verify that this will meet their requirements.

This course is open to all denominations.

Course Description:  

Each of us crosses boundaries every day – knocking on a door, calling on the phone, engaging in conversation.  Healthy leadership includes knowing how to navigate such boundaries appropriately, which benefits the congregation and its leaders.

Rev. Diane Wheatley will guide participants through a day-long training, illustrating the impact of appropriate boundaries, providing guidelines for developing those boundaries, suggesting techniques for conversation and intervention, and learning about the ethical analysis of power and authority in the ministerial role. 

Instructor Bio:

Diane is an ordained Lutheran minister (ELCA) currently serving St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Liverpool, NY.  She has a B.A. and M.Ed. from Stanford University and earned her M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA.  She has been a parish pastor for 31 years and before that worked 10 years as an editor and workshop leader in teacher training with Gospel Light Publications. Diane has spent the past 13 years involved in boundaries awareness education.
