Behavioral Assessment 1 Workshop

Behavioral Assessment 1 Workshop

July 21-23, 2022


This workshop will be offered again in 2023.

This workshop via Zoom 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 workshop begins each day at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Central time. There are 2 scheduled breaks along with a 60 minute lunch from 11:30 - 12:30 (CT) to avoid screen fatigue. All workshop materials are mail to your home before the workshop begins.

Presenter

Reverend Raymond P. Carey, Ph.D. is a priest of the Archdiocese of Portland, OR. He has taught at both the secondary and university levels, and presently teaches at Mount Angel Seminary Graduate School of Theology in Saint Benedict, Oregon. Fr. Carey holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He has presented workshops in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. He is a recipient of the NRVC Harvest Award and a Lifetime NRVC member for his work in service of vocation ministry.

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.

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

--Father Derek Swanson, C.M.

What a privilege to learn from Fr. Ray! It was refreshing and validating,  exemplification of our values put to the service of vocation ministry. These were long, full days but I would rather be overwhelmed than underwhelmed. Everything that was covered was relevant and pertinent to discernment and assessment.

--Sister Andrea Koverman, S.C.
