Description: 

This course introduces students to practices of care with an emphasis on self awareness, assessment and interculturality in pastoral/splritual care. The first part of the course will focus on systems theories. Students will explore their own families and cultures of origin and their social identities as a means to learn the related theories and to develop self awareness for pastoral/ spiritual care practice. The second part of the course will relate systems and intercultural approaches to theories of grief and loss, death and dying, aging and dementia while deepening students' understanding of the therapeutic relationship and assessment in spiritual/pastoral care. This course is suitable for students preparing for work in spiritual care and counselling and for students preparing for social and congregational ministry.
