Advanced Spiritual Counseling: Taking Care of Others, Taking Care of Self
Cheryl A. Giles
This course is designed to explore the various roles and boundaries that chaplains and ministers must negotiate in providing spiritual care to others and healthy self-care. Case presentation, group process, and readings will be used to increase skill level and to clarify roles. Two key questions will frame our discussions: (1) How can we participate in the healing process of others? and (2) How does race, gender, social location, sexual orientation and religion/spirituality affect our ability to function effectively as caregivers? Note: Prior course in pastoral counseling/counseling required.
Enrollment Limited: Limited to 15 students. Instructor's permission required.
Open to BTI Students: Yes
Expected to be offered Fall 2014
