2 2 Pastoral Leadership in Care and Counseling PTS offers this program in conjunction with the Counseling and Mediation Center (an Accredited Samaritan Center) of Wichita, Kansas; Dr. Doug Morphis, Executive Director of the center, serves as the lead professor for this track. A Diplomate in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and an Elder in the United Methodist Church, Dr. Morphis offers to students a depth of experience in ministry and pastoral counseling, strong interests in family systems, solution-focused therapy, and mediation techniques, and commitment to ministerial formation and leadership. Most of the classes in the Specialization phase of the program are taught at the Center in Wichita. Beyond the required course work in this track, students have the opportunity to fulfill some of the requirements for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Kansas and for membership in the AAPC in the third and fourth years of study. These additional courses are available to qualified students for an additional fee. (Opportunities for fulfilling such requirements in the state of Oklahoma are currently being investigated.)

4 4 Foundation Phase Courses 1. Pastoral Leadership in Context June 4-13, 2007 Instructor: Dr. Nancy C. Pittman, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Ministry and D.Min. Director This course invites students to engage and critique leadership concepts and theories drawn from both Christian traditions and a variety of current disciplines and arenas. Students will also be given opportunities to reflect upon leadership issues within the context of their ministerial settings and in conversation with the material studied in class. Lectures, large and small group discussions of readings, and case studies are among the methods that will be used to achieve the outcomes of the course. 2. The Biblical Message and the Praxis of God January 8-16, 2008 Instructor: Dr. Dennis E. Smith, Professor of New Testament This course will explore Biblical paradigms that define a theological context for the practice of ministry. The Biblical themes chosen for emphasis in the course may vary from year to year based on the interests and preferences of the professor. 3. Constructive Theology of Ministry June 2-12, 2008 Instructor: Dr. Joe Bessler-Northcutt, Associate Professor of Theology The foundational course in theology, required of all DMin students, is designed to clarify and deepen students theological perspectives as they begin their studies. The course prepares students for the final project by requiring students to situate the vital tasks, practices, and prayerlife of ministry within an explicit theological framework. Readings, in-class work, and assignments will encourage competence in understanding contemporary theological methods and skill in articulating a vision of the Christian faith for our time and context. Issues receiving special attention will include: the process of contextual description, clarity of one s own theological method, awareness of denominational perspective, and attention to the ethical implications of theology for the engagement of society and other religious traditions. Specialization Phase Courses: Pastoral Leadership in Care and Counseling

5 5 Lead Professor: Dr. Doug Morphis 1. Models of Clinical/Theological Assessment Fall 2007 A systematic review and evaluation of models of pastoral, family systems and medical modes of assessment and diagnosis. Students will be asked to utilize the available models in their counseling work. Distinctions between religious, spiritual, theological and pastoral assessment will be made. Students will be asked to develop their own integrative perspective on assessment, attending to the strengths and weaknesses of the major models. 2. Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling Fall 2008 A study and evaluation of solution-focused therapy, a method of brief therapy that emphasizes strengths rather than weaknesses, solutions rather than problems, the future rather than the past and hope rather than despair. This approach is a natural for pastoral counseling and is applicable to a wide range of issues such as family, marriage, children, eating disorders and alcoholism. 3. The Counseling Relationship and Change Fall The goal of the course is to help students articulate and practice their own understanding of what happens in counseling relationships that enhances positive change. Change will be considered from a variety of behavioral, theological and personality theory frameworks. Class content will focus on views of human nature and human potential as well as on techniques. Students will select theories that are most congruent with their own understandings of change. 4. A Cognitive Therapy Approach to Pastoral Counseling Spring 2009 Cognitive therapy is a short-term, active, structured, problem-oriented, collaborative, and psychoeducational model of therapy that is useful in short-term pastoral counseling. The course will enable students to grasp the conceptual model and techniques of cognitive therapy. 5. Perspectives on Human Nature, Development, and Difficulty Spring A systematic review and assessment of the principal personality theories in contemporary psychology. The goal will not only be to gain a comprehensive understanding but also an in-depth view of selected individual theorists. The purpose will be both to provide a psychological framework for the counselor s work and to engage psychological theory in a dialogue with theology. Since both address three major questions about persons, they can provide a basis for critique and appreciation. 6. Family Systems Theory and Pastoral Counseling I & II Fall 2007, Spring 2008 The systems framework will be used for pastoral counseling as it relates to individuals, marriage, and family. It will also be used to describe systems processes as they relate and appear in the congregation.

6 6 7. Pastor as Counselor: Techniques for the Parish Spring 2008 This course will include theology of pastoral care, self-care, and the use of specific counseling techniques for persons and groups in church settings. Professional ethics will also be presented. 8. Dyad Supervision This course, taken every semester in which a student in enrolled in Specialization phase coursework, consists of supervision with two students and one supervisor. No credit hours awarded, but the course is recorded on the student s transcript. Project Phase Courses 1. Project Development Seminar I January 17, 2008 Instructor: Dr. Nancy C. Pittman This course will serve as an introduction to the art and craft of developing a DMin project, methods for research in ministry, and the process of writing a project. Students will participate in this course after completing the 2 nd Foundation Course. 2. Project Development Seminar II June 12, 2009 Instructor: Dr. Nancy C. Pittman This course will meet, on an ongoing basis, on the 2 nd Friday of every DMin Fortnight from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This course will be required for all students in the Specialization and Project Phases. Students must participate in a minimum of 5 sessions. The goal of the Project Development Seminar II is to facilitate peer learning as a tool for achieving clarity about students research and project interests. Regardless of their year or track in the program, students will meet in seminar format with the DMin Director and one other faculty member to present versions of their proposal to one another, to participate in discussion of the proposals of other students, and to report progress toward completion of the project. Students will also be given opportunity to present materials related to their research interests, ministry settings, and Specialization Track concerns. These materials may take various forms, i.e., case studies, book reviews, sermons, exegetical papers, verbatims, etc. 3. Project Proposal Course This course will be arranged between student and advisor. The reader will also be consulted. When a proposal has been accepted by advisor, reader, and DMin Director, the student will be granted candidacy for the DMin degree.

7 7 4. Project Course Students enroll in this course after passing the Project Proposal Course. It is also arranged between student and advisor; again, the reader and DMin Director will be consulted as needed.
