Abstract
"This research will explore factors that impact a pastor's ability and willingness to engage in self-care strategies. It is my observation, through research and conversation, that African American pastors are less likely to engage in self-care strategies, seek mental health counseling, or engage in activities sponsored by evangelical leadership initiatives. In an effort to reduce the risk of attrition from ministry, Clergy Couple Care is a culturally sensitive, multi-couple retreat model, offered to equip new and seasoned clergy couples with education regarding the: 1) impact of trauma in ministry, 2) implementation of self-care strategies, 3) importance of healthy effective communication skills, and 4) inclusion of couple relationship enhancement interventions." -- Leaf [2].
