1 Doctor of Ministry Pastoral Care and Counseling Emphasis Overview San Francisco Theological Seminary offers a Doctor of Ministry with special emphasis on Pastoral Care and Counseling. This is one of several tracks or concentrations in the Doctor of Ministry program. The Doctor of Ministry with special emphasis in Pastoral Care and Counseling is a threeyear program that prepares religious professionals to practice care and counseling at a high degree of competency and professionalism by: Integrating spirituality and counseling Improving the skills of effective counseling Sharpening research and reflective skills Facilitating personal growth Providing seasoned professional teachers in an atmosphere of dialogue between theory and practice. Primarily, this program is designed for professional who serve or plan to serve in a context of ministry, such as chaplains, pastoral care specialists, pastoral counselors or pastors with a special focus on care. While rooted in the Christian tradition, this program is open to religious professionals across the spectrum of spiritual traditions. This program defines religious professionals broadly, as including those ordained, commissioned, endorsed or otherwise set aside by their faith group as authorized to do ministry on their behalf. This program may also be appropriate to persons, already established as a licensed mental health professional, who wishes to deepen their understanding of the integration of spirituality and psychotherapy. Our Learning Style We believe that learning to be an effective and compassionate care giver involves both academic learning and clinical training. Some of our students come to this program having already become experienced clinicians and care givers. Others of you will want to contract for clinical training along side of your participation in this Doctor of Ministry program, thus enriching your learning experience. We can assist you to find an appropriate placement and supervisor to secure this goal. We encourage our students to work toward certificated membership in a professional organization most appropriate to 1

2 their ministry, such as the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, Association of Clinical Pastoral Education, the Association of Professional Chaplains or the mental health professional association appropriate to their licensure. Resource Seminars: Normally, the course work in the Doctor of Ministry program is taught in the format of doctoral level seminars, where student participation and responsibility for learning are maximized. For more details, see the curriculum page below. Prerequisites for Admission Basic admission requirements include a three- or four-year Master of Divinity degree (or its equivalent) with a 3.0 GPA or above from an accredited university; ecclesiastical endorsement for one s ministry; at least one unit of clinical pastoral education (CPE) or its equivalent; and at least three years of experience in some form of ministry. Other requirements are listed on the admissions and tuition page below. Curriculum Units of Study The Doctor of Ministry with emphasis in Pastoral Care and Counseling comprises 36 semester units of class and clinical work. This total also includes 12 semester units of dissertation/project research and writing. Course Descriptions How People Change: Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy (DMPS-6051) In this course, we will examine the major theories of personality and counseling, as background theory and as having practical implications for our work as pastoral caregivers and counselors. The primary theme of this comprehensive review is what constitutes change. How do people change? What blocks change? What facilitates change? Our effort will result in each student building an integrated theory of pastoral counseling and a theology of change. Dynamics of Loss, Grief, Trauma in Pastoral Care and Counseling (DMPS-6041) This course explores the psychological, relational and theological dynamics of loss, grief and trauma. We will place these subjects in the larger theoretical contexts of attachment theory and trauma theory. We will give special attention to the growing incidence of trauma in modern life, and the corresponding body of literature that informs how we understand the dynamics of trauma. We will then explore the practical implications of this theory for pastors, chaplains and counselors who are seeking to help people and families in pain. Attention will also be given to the theological understandings of loss, grief and trauma in the context of clinical work. 2

3 Contemporary Trends in Pastoral Counseling (DMPS-6044) This course will examine some of the emerging trends in pastoral counseling issues that impact every pastor increasingly in parish ministry and in the specialized ministries of pastoral care and counseling. Many of these emerging issues are related to the dawning of the postmodern age with all of its implications. Narrative therapy is certainly one expression of the post-modern age, as is the trend toward short-term treatment approaches. In this increasingly diverse world, we will also examine the multicultural perspective on counseling and care-giving and the implications of a multicultural perspective for the traditional theories of pastoral counseling. Assessment, Diagnosis and Clinical Theology (DMPS-6105) This course will review the major issues and approaches to the assessment and diagnosis of psychological and relational problems from a pastoral perspective. We will look in detail at the prevailing diagnostic scheme based on the DSM-IV. We will attempt to reflect on various diagnoses from theological perspectives and suggest ways that the DSM-IV system could be augmented by a spiritual axis. We will look at several of the more common assessment tools used by pastoral counselors today, and give students opportunities to become thoroughly acquainted with at least one tool. We will also dig deeply into how we understand some of the more common psychological problems depression, anxiety, obsessions and impulse control problems from both psychological and theological perspectives. This course will teach students how to think theologically about psychological issues. Addictions and Spirituality (DMPS-6060) This course addresses current understandings of the description, etiology and treatment of addictive disorders including, but not limited to, addictions to legal and illegal substances such as alcohol and drugs, as well as addictions to various activities. Is there such a thing as an addictive personality? What is the spiritual dimension of addiction diseases and how can pastoral caregivers and counselors play a critical role in helping people overcome their addiction difficulties? Faith and Counseling throughout the Life Cycle (DMPS-6049) We will study the contributions of key contemporary developmental theorists, looking at the needs, developmental tasks, and role of faith at each life stage. We will give particular attention to the adult life stages. We will explore the dynamics of rituals and how to effectively use rituals in therapeutic ways. We will explore the opportunities for pastoral care at various stages of the life cycle. This course also includes an exploration of issues in the field of psychology of religion, particular such questions as: What is a healthy faith? What is a toxic faith? How does faith develop over the life cycle? Pastoral Counseling with Couples and Families (DMPS-6055) This course provides a basic framework for understanding and reflecting on couples and family systems in theory and practice. It will focus on two primary models of family work: communication theory and Bowen family therapy. Attention will be given to couple dynamics and models of couple interventions, and also attention to family dynamics and models of family interventions. The genogram is a tool for 3

4 making assessments with individuals, couples, and families in pastoral counseling. We will practice using the genogram in class, learning to deepen understandings of persons in relationship. Multicultural Counseling and Social Analysis (DMPS-6050) In this course we will be exploring issues of culture and social location and how those issues influence psychological and spiritual well-being, and the helping process itself. The course seeks to provide students with a way of understanding people within their cultural context. By cultural context, this course means to include gender, age, class, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, cognitive and physical characteristics, and religious orientation. By understanding the cultural factors operative in the counseling relationship, students will be better equipped to serve in multi cultural settings. Groups and Leadership in Congregational Settings (DMPS-6065) This course will introduce the subject of the full range of group work in the life of a congregation or counseling clinic. We will examine the basics of group dynamics, and assist students to understand the dynamics of group process, so that they can be more effective group leaders/facilitators. In particular,, we will explore how a pastoral counselor can create and use support and therapy groups to augment ministry with persons. We will explore what constitutes effective pastoral leadership--- in particular, a discussion of conflict management and conflict resolution techniques as applied to congregational/group conflicts. This course will also touch on a systematic way of understanding congregational health and function, with related implications for pastoral care. Ethics and Professional Issues in Pastoral Care This seminar will focus on the variety of ethical and professional issues that contemporary pastoral care specialists, chaplains, pastoral counselors, and congregational clergy, need to navigate if they are to effectively serve others. We will give special attention to: medical ethics and clergy misconduct issues and some of the current court decisions that impinge on the practice of ministry in a secular state. We will also give attention to the special challenges of serving as a pastoral care specialist within larger institutions, like hospitals, military, corporations and ecclesiological structures. While the seminar will use many case examples, students will be encouraged develop a comprehensive theory/theology of ethics, informed by but also informing the various contexts in which the student serves. Theological Research Methods/DP Workshop This workshop introduces students to integrative methods that connect theological and psychological perspectives in the theory and practice of pastoral counseling. The course will focus on identifying, understanding, and practicing the skill of theological reflection. Methods of critical reflection and decision-making will be presented and implemented through case studies and examination of problems and procedures in the practice of pastoral care and counseling. This workshop mentors students in the development of their Dissertation Project proposal. 4
