Jennifer Cavanough, who is a Special Needs Teacher and Counsellour, led an elective on Major Pastoral Issues with Youth at the Ministry Conference in July:
It’s getting more difficult to define exactly which kids are in crisis. We can’t always just look at students and think that we can define them. Whether they have multiple piercings or are clean-shaven, whether they wear all black or the latest fashion—it isn’t always easy to get under the façade and identify which kids need help.
Ministry with children and youth is very important to us in the Diocese of Tasmania. I encourage you to have a read through these resources. You can also download these resources on our website here.
