The Pastoral Care book (titled, “The Art of Pastoral Care”) just arrived in the mail. It is written by Bob and Celia Munson, for use for CPO, Intro to Pastoral Care, and (perhaps) first unit of CPE. They are presently working on a follow up volume for advanced units of CPE.
At the present, the book is available on Amazon for about 9 dollars (US), and Kindle for $2.50. We are looking for more cost effective options for paper copies in the Philippines.
It took something like 3 years, but finally finished the book, “The Art of Pastoral Care.” Bob and Celia developed the materials for Bukal Life Care in Baguio City, Philippines. Primarily, this is for “Intro to Pastoral Care” and “Clinical Pastoral
Orientation.” The follow-on book, The Dynamics of Pastoral
Care, when done, will add to this for those moving on into
Units 1-4 of Clinical Pastoral Education.
The goal in this (short) book was to find some balance points:
- Balance between Theology and Psychology
- Balance between Historical and Clinical Pastoral Care
