PRTH3770: Pastoral Care and Counseling

Class Program
Credits 3
This course will explore pastoral care in two dynamic forms. The first relates to the ability of pastors to care for their own selves. The second is closely related to the first by focusing on a pastor's ability to provide spiritual and whole-person care for others. The course focuses on basic styles of pastoral counseling, congregational care ministries, and the internal discipline of pastoral self-care in addition to the pastor's external role as both a spiritual counselor and guide for those who require more advanced professional support.
