Professional Spiritual and Pastoral Care
BCJC Rabbi Stephen B. Roberts
Number of pages: 500
The first comprehensive resource for spiritual and pastoral caregivers—a vital resource for clergy, seminarians, chaplains, pastoral counselors and caregivers of all faith traditions.
This essential resource integrates the classic foundations of pastoral care with the latest approaches to spiritual care. It is specifically intended for professionals who work or spend time with congregants in acute care hospitals, behavioral health facilities, rehabilitation centers and long-term care facilities.
Offering the latest theological perspectives and tools, along with basic theory and skills from the best pastoral and spiritual care texts, research and concepts, the contributors to this resource are experts in their fields, and include eight current or past presidents of the major chaplaincy organizations.
“Impressive.... An excellent resource for providers of pastoral care as well as a teaching resource for those professionals who teach pastoral care.”
—Sally A. Schwab, president-elect, Association for Clinical Pastoral Education
“A significant and invaluable gift to the profession of chaplaincy.... A prized resource for the CPE student and the twenty-five-year-anniversary chaplain [and] answers a real need.”
—David A. Lichter, DMin, executive director, National Association of Catholic Chaplains
