College: Ministering to Parents of Collegiates
The purpose of this workshop is to better equip pastors to help parents who are faced with the challenge of dealing with young adult children who are away at college. Topics will include: understanding the family dynamics at play – e.g. growing pains, transition; normal expectations and how to prepare for possible outcomes; the advantages and disadvantages of technology in staying connected with collegiates; faith matters – holding on loosely; mental health challenges; and resources for parents (counseling referrals).
