Recognizing Addiction in the Congregation
Whether or not we would like to believe it, a percentage of your congregation is struggling with addiction issues (either for themselves or a loved one). It is imperative to be aware of and understand the characteristics and symptoms of addictive disorders and addictive thinking. This workshop will assist pastors and lay ministers in recognizing and understanding what they are experiencing with parishioners and how to address the issues initially.
