Overview

This subject compares and contrasts current Christian counselling approaches with progressive biblical counselling, and explains the systematics and biblical theology of counselling. Students are equipped for pastoral ministry in various circumstances, and undertake an in-depth study of a specific problem area of pastoral couselling. This unit requires listening to lectures delivered by Ed Welch at PTC Melbourne in 2011; some set reading with a written reading report and tutorial presentation; a pastoral counselling analysis and ministry plan for a literature based case study; and an essay on a particular problem area.
