Process of Compassion: Pastoral Care during School Closings
McDevitt, Patrick J.; Dosen, Anthony J.; Ryan, Frances
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v10 n1 p24-40 Sep 2006
Catholic education in the United States continues to face mounting economic challenges. Dioceses are being challenged with the painful reality of closing Catholic schools that have long served communities. These school closings leave behind wounded and disillusioned professionals. The Process of Compassion Workshop was developed to provide personal and professional help for healing so that teachers could move forward in their careers. This article provides a theoretical framework with action research to care for the dedicated people school closings leave behind. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
