This course identifies that Pastoral care is a search for the Divine in the circumstances of our lives. Its aim is for the patient/client to find meaning and purpose in his/her situation and for the caregiver to find meaning in his/her profession.
This is an exciting course. This course presents a perspective and a vision. This perspective and vision articulates a clear rationale and strategies that you can use to integrate spirituality into the practice of your caring work.
