This virtual workshop presents practical interviewing techniques housed in a theoretical framework of behavioral assessment. While the focus of the workshop is on assessment of candidates for admission to initial formation, the methodology easily applies to assessing candidates in other stages of formation as well. Workshop participants study sample case reports and learn skills for interviewing as well as guidelines for organizing the information into useful reports. Interview topics include family background, educational and occupational histories, psychosexual histories and intimacy skills, faith history, and other pertinent issues related to comprehensive vocation assessment.

Please note this three-day virtual workshop begins on October 8 and ends on October 10. The workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Central time. (On Sunday, the workshop will begin at 10:00 a.m. CT).  There is a 60 minute break from noon - 1:00 p.m. Central time.  Workshop folders will be mailed to participants within two weeks of registration. 

This workshop is not recorded to allow the presenter and participants the opportunity to speak authentically in a learning community. Personal recording is prohibited.

I appreciated the breath and depth of Fr. Ray. The knowledge and illustrations were thorough with a healthy dose of humor made the workshop enjoyable. His open disposition and clarity with a very structured and systematic approach surpassed my expectations. I feel more equipped to take on the task of aspirant director

--Sr. Renee Hall, OP, from Port of Spain, Trinidad

I loved his humor and stories that related to the content well. This workshop exceeded my expectations. Thank you! 

--Father Derek Swanson, C.M.

After this workshop, I have the confidence to use the Behavioral Assessment following FDIC and direct/indirect interviewing techniques to respect each discerner's right to minimal intrusion. Fr. Ray's knowledge and his ability to share stories that drive deeper into the information is most helpful.

--Sister Jean Rhoads, D.C.

Fr. Ray is a fantastic teacher. I would take any workshop he is teaching

Bro. Pat Douglas, S.J.
