Introduction to Pastoral Counselling Online Facilitation
Wednesday, 22nd September @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This facilitation introduces the field of pastoral counselling by examining its historical development, theoretical foundations, and practice approaches. Pastoral counselling can be considered a specialised form of pastoral care which integrates theology, spirituality, and counselling theory. The context in which pastoral counselling is practised can be quite diverse ranging from church, parachurch, schools, universities, community centres, and hospitals settings, to name a few. Participants will explore the emergence of pastoral counselling, its practice, and key ethical considerations within the field.
Note that online facilitation will run between 9am – 5pm, unless otherwise specified. Participants will be provided with the Zoom link prior to the start of facilitation.
