This is a basic course with focus on practical application in pastoral ministry based on sound pastoral theological understanding. It will explore all the areas in congregational life in which pastoral ministry might be needed. Based on lectures, readings and conversations, students will be required to develop the appropriate response in certain situations using preaching skills, counseling, and other forms of pastoral ministry. We will also look at the restrictions under which counseling can take place or is required as directed by national or diocesan church canons. Based on role-playing, written reflections and classroom participation students will be graded on a letter grade basis. This course is intended for M.Div and MA/MTS students. [Auditors excluded]

SECTION 1 [DSPT] This course introduces basic concepts, attitudes, and skills of pastoral counseling. Consideration is given to the fundamental process and skills of pastoral counseling to more effectively deal with common pastoral concerns and problems. It further covers professional ethics for pastoral ministers including issues such as boundaries, power differentials, confidentiality, and sexual misconduct. Systematic training and practice in basic responding and initiating skills are provided. Multicultural implications are included. Intended audience: MDiv, MA, MTS. _______________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 2[JST] Highlighting pastoral case material and interpersonal process, the course introduces students to the basic interviewing skills of pastoral counseling and provides an overview of clinical psychopathology. This course understands psycho­logical distress within the context of pastoral counseling from a biopsychosocial and spiritual perspective. The challenges of trauma, addiction, and recovery are especially highlighted. Through interviewing and group facilitation, students will hopefully experience themselves as pastoral agents of healing. Taught from a clinical psychodynamic perspective with attention to professional ethics for pastoral ministers, direct experience with underserved populations is required – students will be offered short term pastoral opportunities with homeless populations recovering from trauma and/or addiction. These community engaged learning opportunities are scheduled for some late afternoons on Friday and/or two Saturdays during the semester. Intended audience: MDiv, MA, MTS
