Public People, Private Lives: Tackling Stress in Clergy Families [9780826426123]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Who cares for the carers? Is it possible for the families of public figures to have private lives? How does it feel to be a vicarage child in the 21st century?The authors tackle an area of enormous importance for the Church: the stresses of clerical family life, with implications which range from the nature of the appointments system and the principle of tied accommodation to the way in which the Church supports its clergy and their families. More than simply a critique of the current situation, however, this book makes some specific recommendations, thus offering a valuable resource to the Church and, potentially, well beyond it.It is an essential reading for clergy and prospective clergy and their families, but more especially for all those responsible for clergy training, appointment and welfare, and anyone with an interest in the health, wellbeing and future functioning of the Church.
AUTHOR: Jean Burton worked as PA to a City director, a diplomat and the Editor of the Sunday Times before becoming a diocesan social worker with a brief which included counselling clergy and their families. Following training as a systemic family therapist, she joined the NHS in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health team. Her private practice has specialised in issues of work/family stress and an employee assistance programme. Chris Burton was a Chartered Accountant before being ordained. He served in diverse parishes in Southwark, York and Birmingham before becoming Team Rector of a large ecumenical parish in Harlow. Three years of training in family therapy enhanced his work with families.
