Upcoming Webinars on Inclusive Faith Support and Ministry

March 29. ARC Webinar

E-LEARNING SERIES REGISTRATION FORM From Rights to Relationships: The Power of Inclusive Spiritual Supports - Thursday March 29, 2012, 2pm- 4pm EST

This webinar will feature Bill Gaventa and Erik Carter, two presenters who will explore three dimensions of this powerful but too frequently untapped source of community inclusion:

1. Spiritual needs and supports: What the research shows? Erik will summarize the growing research in the area of spiritual supports, and highlight arenas in which more research is needed.

2. Working with congregations of all major traditions on inclusive spiritual supports. Bill and Erik will share best practices, from their experience, in supporting clergy and congregations as they begin and move towards inclusive faith supports.

3. Learning to live our values: Strategies and resources to assist service providers in supporting the spiritual needs and choices of the people they support. Bill Gaventa will outline ways for providers and advocates to honor and address spirituality and spiritual supports.
