Welcome to Reality DOSE!

This site focuses on equipping the international church-mission community  and other sectors with materials on health and dysfunction. The main resource is a foundational article in 12 languages called: Wise as Doves and Innocent as Serpents? Doing Conflict Resolution Better. The article deals with dysfunction, discipline, and conflict resolution. It is written by Dr. Kelly O’Donnell, and was first published in January 2007 in the EMQ journal.

The "Reality DOSE" site gets its name from the above article  (DOves and SErpents). It refers to getting a good "dose of reality" so that colleagues across sectors and around the world can: a) better understand “relational reality”, b) strengthen “relational resiliency”, and c) promote good practice to develop and protect staff, volunteers, and organizations.                    

Note that a slightly expanded version of this article is here: Wise Doves and Innocent Serpents? Promoting Health and Confronting Dysfunction in the Mission Community Member Care in India: From Ministry Call to Home Call (2012).

Wise as Doves and Innocent as Sepents?
