All recently scheduled workshops have been conducted. Future workshops for later this year are being considered by several churches. Please check back later for more updated information.
A new workshop title has been added this year, “The Art of Visiting.” We are continuing the theme of advancing your practice of Christian Healing through a better understanding of the Christian Science nursing arts. For more information and to schedule a workshop, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (407) 880-8700.
You will learn many things about Christian Science nursing at these workshops. However, the focus is on the role of the caregiver from the Christian Science perspective – things every Christian Scientist should know. Each workshop is conducted by a Christian Science Journal-listed nurse.
1. “The Art of Visiting”
We will discuss several different scenarios whereby you might be conducting a visit and the approaches you might use (e.g. home visit, institutional visit, spontaneous visit, etc.).
- The Offer to Visit
Topics include recognizing the need, ideas for prayerful readiness, and approaches you might take to arrange for a visit.
- Pre-visit preparation
Topics include metaphysical preparation for the visit, what to bring, and visit confirmation.
- Conducting the visit
Topics include ideas on keeping thought uplifted, the greeting, listening and assessing needs, responding to different types of needs, and what to do in case of an emergency.
- Post-visit Considerations
Topics include handling impositions to thought, follow-up actions and visits, working with others, additional resources, and legal and ethical issues to consider.
2. “Christian Science Nursing and Caregiving”
- The metaphysical foundation for caring for others
- What Christian Science nurses do
- What Christian Science nurses do not do
- Practical ways to assist others who need care
