Course Description

  • Framework, skills and ethics

This core module, along with the module Approaches to Spiritual Formation, forms the theoretical framework and practical perspective. It facilitates the application of both theory and relational skills to the practice of pastoral care, chaplaincy, spiritual direction and mentoring/coaching.

  • Approaches to Spiritual Formation

An approach which underpins all else in our lives, providing focus; a clearly articulated process and a practice designed to heighten our awareness of God.  This module explores and progresses that awareness in our daily lives.

  • Spiritual Direction

The scope of this topic is wide and includes theology, historical antecedents and ways in which our ‘faith journey’ can be conceptualised. The topic includes the practice of both regular ongoing direction and retreat direction. This module will enable students to use spiritual direction as the main focus of their ministry; it will also equip those with other ministries to use the skills of spiritual direction.
