Health & Wellness in Candidate Assessment workshop

New at 2024 Summer Institute! Today’s discerners come with varied healthcare preferences, chronic illnesses, and problematic medical issues that may complicate vocation discernment and the admissions process. Canon law 642 informs vocation directors and major superiors “to exercise a vigilant care to admit only those who, besides being of required age, are healthy, have a suitable disposition, and have sufficient maturity to undertake the life which is proper to the institute.” What does this mean for discerners living with diagnoses of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, lack of vaccinations, neurodiversity, anxiety, depression, ADHD, eating disorders, asthma, sleep apnea, long COVID, etc.? 

This Health and Wellness in Candidate Assessment workshop addresses challenging issues that preclude admission to initial formation, must be resolved before admission, or can be part of a health history that will rarely disrupt overall wellness. Learn which health issues are more prevalent in cultures of origin, families, generations, and genders. Discover ways to ask minimally invasive questions about health behaviors including actions, practices, or habits that have an impact on health and vocation discernment.

Please note this two-day workshop focused on Health & Wellness in Candidate Assessment begins on July 23 at 9:00 a.m. and ends on July 24 at 4:00 p.m. Central time. Overnight accommodations are included, with arrivals after 3 pm on July 22 and departures before 9 am on July 25

Workshop fees include materials, speaker stipends, facility fees, all meals, and breaks. The workshop fee also includes overnight accommodations for 3 nights, arriving after 3:00 p.m. on July 22 and checking out by 9:00 a.m. on July 25. If you do not need overnight accommodations, please contact
