This webinar will explore this key cultural competency, and discuss ways to assess the needs of your clients.

What to Do When a Registered Sex Offender Comes to Your Congregation

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Kathy McCallie, Phillips Theological Seminary

Registered sex offenders who are released into the community are approaching faith communities and asking to participate in worship and other activities. We know that community support is important to prevent re-offending. How can faith communities be part of an offender’s support network and insure safety for the congregation? Rev. Kathy McCallie has helped a congregation through the process of creating and implementing a policy and educational plan on this issue and has a wealth of experience to share.

Check back soon for the date!

Power and Control: Understanding How Faith Can Play a Role in Intimate Partner Violence

Presenter: Rev. Dr. Marie M. Fortune

The Power and Control Wheel is one of the foundational teaching tools for discussing domestic violence. However, the issue of faith and faith communities, so central to the lives of many survivors, was never included. Rev. Marie Fortune addresses this oversight and discusses how faith and spiritual teachings can support violence or overcome it.
