Pastoral Counseling Practicum: Advanced Theory and Practice CHM684

Instructor: Pastoral Counseling Practicum: Advanced Theory and Practice CHM684

This practicum provides students with the opportunity to practice pastoral counseling and to further connect theory with experience. Students engage in the ministry of counseling by drawing on insights from the field of psychotherapy as they relate to pastoral care and by giving special attention to the unique resources of the gospel and the church for guidance, support, and healing. Theory and practice are integrated through focusing on particular problems — such as crises, loss, and abuse — and by learning specific counseling methods. Prerequisites: Human Development and Christian Formation; Pastoral Care 1: Theological, Spiritual, and Psychological Principles; Pastoral Care 2: Systems, Assessments, and Interventions of Trauma. (MDiv 3, 4, 5)
