Congregational Trauma : Caring Coping And Learning


All congregations experience stress. Dealing with the out-of-the-ordinary event or tragedy-a fire, a sexual misconduct scandal, or the untimely death of a pastor, for instance-requires a completely different order of congregational coping skills. This is the first book to address those needs comprehensively, covering care strategies, how to adapt worship, assessment tools for measuring healing, how the judicatory can help, how to handle the media, and how tragedy can give rise to learning. Hudson is executive presbyter, Presbytery of Whitewater Valley (PCUSA), in Indianapolis.
