Tony Curtis HendersonAssociate Professor of Practical Theology

This course will cover basic types of professional pastoral care and counseling that have become normative for traditional Protestantism in the 21st century, along with more recently articulated African-American and feminist approaches. It will also cover basic types of lay and small group pastoral care in the emerging church of the future. You will practice basic counseling skills in one-on-one and small group approaches, and be introduced to a variety of readings, skill exercises and an empathy training project.
