Description: 

This course provides students opportunities to demonstrate the MPS outcomes, CASC and entry-to-practice CRPO competencies. Early in the semester, in consultation with professor and small group members, students will develop a learning covenant to identify specific learning goals, including a bibliography and process/timeline for achieving identified goals. The goals will be established in relation to their learning through the program based on their ability to demonstrate the MPS Outcomes, CRPO and/or CASC/ACSS Competencies. The course will culminate in 4 papers which will be merged into one large paper and submitted at the end of the course. In the assignments students will articulate and give evidence for their safe and effective use of self, the psycho-spiritual theory base for their practice and will demonstrate integration of their spiritual care/psycho-spiritual practice into a theological/spiritual/religious framework.
