P630 Pastoral Care with Women
The importance of gender-sensitive pastoral care has been increasingly recognized as basic to pastoral competency. Students will explore both cultural/social/political contexts of women's reality, and inner dimensions of women's experience, spirituality, and "women's ways of knowing." Special topics include women's life cycle, balancing work and relationships, responding to violence against women, depression in women, and the pastoral impact of theological issues such as sacrifice, forgiveness, empowerment and liberation. PREREQUISITE: Introduction to Pastoral Care P232 or equivalent; basic unit of CPE recommended.
