Great article on communication from the Dept of Health and Human Services. As Chaplains, we have to have continuing education credits each year. Most professions do. In life, we train to drive, train in the military, study for years for our careers, and we even read instruction books on how to put things together or maintain an item we purchase. We don’t really train to be in relationships or make a point to have continuing education on how to be with another person, whatever the nature of the relationship may be. We plan our retirements, investments, weddings, and even funerals, but we don’t plan or train enough in relationships. What if 50 continuing education credits were required each year regarding relationships! Would it make a difference in statistics? I think so.
