Whitstable, St Peter
This is a course designed to help participants to become more aware of their own diversity along with their attitudes towards differences more generally. This, in turn, will help participants to become stronger and more confident in their ability to acknowledge and engage with people and issues who/ that are different. This will lead participants on to become more able to tolerate, embrace and celebrate differences that develop in their pastoral and caring work.
Trainer and facilitator: R-A “Kitty” Morgan-Jones, PhD: mother, vicar’s wife, counsellor and social worker working with individuals, couples and families.
Please consider coming on this course and through that help us to learn more about the psychology of celebrating differences.Kitty writes:
“In this course, I would like us to look at what it is specifically about ‘differences’ that makes many people find them difficult. And also what helps us move on to overcome these difficulties so that we can build more constructive relationships. One way is by making use of a special acronym called,’ the graces.’ (eg.,gender, race, ability, culture, ethnicity, spirituality).
Even then, however, inner fears may make us fall short of doing what we have been trained to do or that which we believe to be appropriate. In this course, we will investigate this mysterious feature of ‘difference.’
We will also explore “differences” by drawing from a fresh look at the work of C G Jung. He created a typology of human personality and suggested that different aspects of persons are more or less to the fore. Some of these concepts are very familiar and others less so, but all of us live out or engage with these differences every day of our lives within our relationships. In this workshop, I wish to explore in deeper detail how these personality differences impact on us within our families and in our pastoral work with families.”
Working with Difference will take place at St Peter’s Church, Sydenham Street, Whitstable, CT5 1HN on
Saturday the 7th, 14th and 21st October 2017 from 3.30pm to 5pm.
It is free of charge though a donation to St Peter’s church would be welcome at the end of the course.
