Presentation Abstract

Clergy families are impacted by the demands of ministers’ professional practice in ways that increases the family’s level of stress and effects it’s functioning. This workshop will examine the results of a survey conducted with pastors, spouses, and young adult children, who are members of a conservative evangelical religion that measured personal challenges and levels of stress. Then there will be an exploration of the pressures identified in follow up focus groups with five pastoral families. Participants will learn about the unique pressures experienced by pastoral families, how those pressures affect the family system, and ways to provide more support.
