Pastoral Care Case Colloquy

Pastoral caregivers are invited to participate in a monthly Pastoral Care Case Colloquy at AMBS during fall and spring semesters 2013-14. The Colloquy offers a collegial, safe, and supportive space for pastoral ministers and pastoral care students to consider ongoing challenges in pastoral care and to receive helpful orientation. Participants will contribute written (one-page) case studies using specified guidelines including background and description, how they tried to help, questions raised, dilemmas, theological reflection, and better practices. Each case will be considered in the manner of pastoral clinical supervision.


The Colloquy will meet on the AMBS campus from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. on the following Thursdays:

Fall semester:

September 12, October 10, October 24, November 14, 2013

Spring semester:
