Most students have noticed that people around them have emotional, spiritual, economic, and physical problems. Even the most persuasive sermon may not be heard by someone with serious personal problems. The Christian student, layperson, pastor, or religious worker must find ways to help people with their problems. Introduction to Pastoral Counseling is a look at the different perspectives from which pastoral counseling may be seen. It emphasizes the necessary steps in preparing to become a pastoral counselor, and gives attention to legal and practical ramifications of counseling. It also examines some of the issues faced by the pastoral counselor, seeking to find a balance between the clinical and the spiritual, with the Bible as the final authority. This course investigates some of the current approaches to counseling and sets guidelines for counseling settings and sessions.


If you are enrolled in this course for three credits, the third credit will be earned by completing a collateral reading assignment (CRA) based on the textbook "Counseling and Psychotherapy: A Christian Perspective" by Siang-Yang Tan.
