pastoral counseling class

As some of you may know, I'm slowly working on a masters degree in theology, which I hope to complete in the next couple of years.

This fall I'm taking a class on pastoral counseling. The two texts for the course are A Clinical Handbook of Pastoral Counseling (Volume One) edited by R. Wicks, R. Parsons, and D. Capps (Paulist 1993) and God Beyond Gender by Gail Ramshaw (Fortress 1995).

The first one appears to be a truly helpful resource and I look forward to working through it. The second one is written by one of my colleagues at La Salle University and should make for interesting class discussion, if nothing else.

I'll keep you posted.
