Description: 

An introduction to a study of the transgenerational processes operative in a minister's three key contexts -- the family of origin, the nuclear family/family of creation and the work 'family' or congregation. Current family systems theory will be explored for its insight in assessing the "emotional/instinctual system" of these three contexts. Practical applications will focus on the minister's personal growth, use of self and leadership style in offering pastoral care. Lectures, class and small group discussion, written assignments (20%), role play class presentation (20%), major paper (50%), class participation (10%).
