We will examine the varieties of struggles and illnesses common to our time and culture, and seek to apply the rich resources of the Christian tradition and the Church to the task of fostering healing and wholeness for those in our care. Through a combination of Biblical and theological perspectives, as well as the insights of modern psychology, students will gain a holistic understanding of the task of pastoral care.
