KNP2548 – Pastoral Care: Self, Family, Congregation
Course Description: An introduction to the 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.
