CARE stands for Conversational Approach to Relational Effectiveness. CARE is a training program that uses conversational and relational skills to make real, and bring to life, the value-base of “mutuality.” It is intended to enhance relational effectiveness by fostering congruence, authenticity and interdependence. It promotes a culture of nonviolence and provides the concomitant skills to behave the gospel call to “love one another.”

We provide training for religious congregations, leadership teams, as well as other value based organizations. When applied to organizations systemic change is enabled by redefining the cultural norms of relating. While the basic skills of CARE are about communications, the heart of it is about life skills for relating well in community.


Communities, teams and groups that go through CARE together form a learning community. It is a one-of-a-kind experience that has long-lasting effects. The best way to learn about it is by talking with us and the people that have gone through it.
