Description: 

This course will examine a number of core issues which impact pastoral counsellors, marriage and family therapists, and chaplains who are currently working in a variety of private and institutional contexts. A case studies approach will be used in dialogue with the most current ethical codes of conduct outlined by several major certifying and regulating bodies in the Canada and the United States, such as the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC, formerly CAPPE), the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT/OAMFT), and the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC). The main purpose of the course will be to foster a deepening sense of the essential nature of ethical reflection and accountability to clients, and the counselling profession in general. Evaluation: class participation, weekly assignments/quizzes, major paper. This course has been pre-approved by the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC) as fulfilling the ethics requirement for their certification programs in Supervised Pastoral Education Certification (CPE & PCE).
