The advanced pastoral practices course follows on the introductory course. You can therefore only enroll for this course once you have compleated the introductory course.
The advanced course will focus on practical conversational skills, while integrating these skills within the relevant theory. The Narrative therapeutic stance will be the guiding paradigmatic approach. The prescribed reading will be article based to focus more specifically on relevant research and practices.
This course will also equip the student for care and support work within the ministry context at Mosaiek Church. Keep in mind that this is a post modern teaching model and selfstudy, practical work and focus on integration is important in this course. Be prepared to be creative, open minded and challenged in your thinking, judging and believe systems
