Staff Care and Wellbeing: Principles and Processes, explores principles of staff care and wellbeing in mission agencies, churches, and other organisations, with especial consideration of their organisational and cultural contexts. The biblical and theological foundations of member care as well as key principles and processes within staff care and wellbeing are examined. Existing models of care are evaluated, and aspects such as suffering and risk, spiritual formation, resilience, and the relationship between HR, member care and wellbeing are explored.  The course is suitable for those experienced in member care, staff care and wellbeing, the wider human resources sector, and those in a Church context with pastoral oversight or responsibility for sending and supporting cross-cultural workers.
