Addictions in their various forms present difficulties and opportunities for church families. The difficulties are, of course, obvious. Addictions disrupt families, church and communities. The problem of addictions is not only spiritual, it also exacerbates physical and financial resources of the family and spiritual community. Services available through pastoral care settings are too often a resource of last resort. Care givers are reluctant to intervene where they are uninvited, and a common trait of addicted individuals is denial and thus are reluctant to reach out for help. This seminar guides the counselor through the opportunity to minister to the addicted individual and the family. In so doing, the spiritual community is served as well.

Lee Whitlock will be our facilitator. Lee has worked extensively with the alcohol and drug addicted, serving as the director of Beacon House, in Louisville, for many years.

You may participate in this seminar from wherever you are. All you need is your tablet or computer and access to the Internet. You may also participate according to your schedule. By spreading the discussion out over several weeks using a discussion forum, you may read others posts and submit your own to the conversation at times that are convenient to you.  1.2 CEUs
