Ministry can be hazardous, especially for marriages. There is a unique subset of issues that put ministry marriages at risk. Licensed mental health professionals need to be equipped to recognize and address these risk factors. To best do this, licensed mental health professionals need to know what is unique to this population and how the ministry context impacts their relationships. This workshop will focus on the unique context of the pastor and spouse, how their relationship is impacted, and how to help.

Learning Objectives
Participants will:
• Assess those in professional ministry for risk factors that may negatively impact the marital relationship allowing the licensed mental health professional to develop an accurate plan of care
• Evaluate the context of pastors and how this influences susceptibility to marital problems, which will help participants develop an appropriate treatment plan for Christian leaders
• Demonstrate experiential techniques applicable to struggling ministry marriages that can be incorporated into an overall model of intervention for those in Christian ministry
