Boundaries and Social Media Refresher Course

When MPESI tested the waters to see if there would be interest in face to face training opportunities for the Boundaries Refresher, the response indicated a great deal of interest.  In connection with presbytery meetings in the Spring 2018, Manitou Conference is offering a 2 hour workshop that meets the requirements for the Boundaries Refresher needed by ministry personnel every five years.  Like the webinars through United in Learning, this face to face 2 hour learning opportunity will focus on the use of social media and attention to maintaining healthy boundaries.  It will also update information about the Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Policy of The United Church of Canada.
