Sr. Jane Becker, OSB, Ph.D. identifies benchmarks for growth in affective maturity.
Affective maturity has been a pivotal goal in priestly formation since Saint Pope John Paul II’s 1992 exhortation, Pastores Dabo Vobis (I Give You Pastors). It is also an essential skill for the celibate lives of men and women religious. Sr. Jane Becker, OSB, Ph.D. explores skills for emotional competence as the basis for growth in affective maturity. These include benchmarks such as awareness of one’s emotional state, skill in discerning others’ emotions, the capacity for empathy, the ability to cope with unpleasant emotions, and discernment of appropriate boundaries. The presenter discusses the implications for formation and assessment.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
