The vocation of teacher is not limited to the professional practice of the art, science and skill of delivering the assigned educational curriculum. Within the complex multi-cultural milieu of the classroom, the ministry of teaching has expanded to include providing pastoral care to children with a variety of needs physical, social, psychological as well as the requirement to deliver the assigned curriculum. Often family/support members are part of this pastoral outreach. This course will offer an ln depth perspective on the extra curricular pastoral issues that have become endemic in classroom teaching. Particular attention will be given to ethics in ministry, as well as legal and boundary issues. Self Care will also be explored as an integral component in a balanced and rewarding experience of pastoral ministry in the classroom.

COLLEGE: Emmanuel College SCHEDULE: Thu TIME: 16:00 to 19:00

PRE-REQUISITES: 10 courses (min) in program and concurrent or prior Practicum experience (SPE or Contextual education) OR permission of instructor. CREDITS: One Credit

This course will examine professional ethics in the helping professions (esp. spiritual care, psycho-spiritual therapy and social service) in order to further equip students for competence in their chosen field. We will consider the philosophical/theological moorings for professional ethics and the need for congruence in belief, thought, word and deed. Students will examine their own belief systems in relation to ethical practice and construct means by which to embed ethical practice within theses systems. They will deepen their understanding of the intrinsic link between ethical practice and self awareness and assess areas of growth in this regard. Professional codes of ethics (Professional Practice Standards CRPO, CASC Code of Ethics, etc.) will be assessed as the minimum standard for the profession. These codes as well as best practices in the field will be practiced in class. Attention to ethical practice in contexts of diversity is central to course.
