Description: 

This pass/fail course builds on the material offered in TXP2511H Boundaries & Bridges and TXP2521H:
Advanced Formation in Pastoral Care Ministry and is designed to expand students’ mastery of the practices essential to effective and ethical pastoral care. This course requires attendance on-site at St. John’s Rehab of five hours per day, four days per week, for 10 weeks. The TXP2521H course instructor
and on-site supervisor of this 1-credit internship will work collaboratively and be in regular communication about students’ progress first in the in-class component and then in the internship. The primary focus of this course is to provide students with opportunities to learn and demonstrate
their ability to:
understand and embody the principles of bringing themselves to ministry with skill, authenticity and integrity (i.e., competent use of self)
articulate a pastoral image of themselves that is lived out in their pastoral functioning
skillfully engage in a range of pastoral skills essential to providing pastoral care to diverse populations
competently and accurately assess the strengths and needs of those they are serving pastorally
integrate their conceptual in-class learning with the practice of pastoral care in the internship
The overarching goal of this course is for each student to gain the requisite skills involved in becoming a person who values and has the ability to offer sensitive and effective pastoral care, is committed to the ongoing task of developing their capacity for ethical thinking, and consistently behaves with authenticity
and integrity.
The internship placement is comprised of time spent visiting patients, time spent in group supervision, and time spent writing reflection papers about the experience of providing pastoral care and being in a supervision group.
