Suzanne N. Hollman, Psy.D., explores the concept of cultural empathy and offers ways to improve intercultural communication in a ministry setting.
We increasingly encounter individuals from other countries and cultures, from brother priests or religious to parishioners and coworkers. Empathy for those who are different from us, and understanding of the cultural complexities that underlie our interactions with them, are essential for effective ministry. Suzanne N. Hollman, Psy.D., reviews the basic elements of intercultural empathy and identifies the signs that someone is experiencing acculturative stress. The presentation includes case studies and discussion of common intercultural challenges in pastoral and community life.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
