Goals of the Module

Connie Goodbread, Acting Director of the UUA’s Hope for Us Conflict Engagement Team, has studied Healthy Congregations development and conflict identification and transformation with Rev. Dr. Peter Steinke, and is recognized for her original work on System Theory with a UU lens. In this training on System Theory, participants will

  • Examine human beings as emotional, intellectual, and physical beings. Everything that human beings create, discover, destroy and build is born out of our humanity.
  • Explore and clarify what is means to be a Unitarian Universalist.
  • Discuss the human qualities that help and hinder the growth of beloved community.

The overarching lens of System Theory will ground the experience and aid religious educators, and other religious professionals, to apply these learnings to their own professional context.
