Understanding Pastoral Care and Counselling

Designation: PACC 3013

This course is a study and exercise in understanding the nature, form, and purpose of the pastoral relationship in bringing about healing and wholeness to those with whom we journey. Pastoral response involves understanding of the situation of others and understanding one’s self through a process of self-exploration and theological reflection. Through the acquisition of relational, pastoral care, and counselling skills, each person will consider and form their own identities and skills as caregivers who care for the body, mind, and Spirit.
