Description of modules
Framework, skills and ethics
This core module, along with the module Approaches to Spiritual Formation, forms the theoretical framework and practical perspective. It facilitates the application of both theory and relational skills to the practice of pastoral care, chaplaincy, spiritual direction and mentoring/coaching.
Approaches to Spiritual Formation
An approach which underpins all else in our lives, providing focus; a clearly articulated process and a practice designed to heighten our awareness of God. This module explores and progresses that awareness in our daily lives.
Mentoring and Coaching
This module will enable students to frame the practice of mentoring/coaching within the central organising theme of spiritual formation. The aim is to give a clear understanding of the theoretical underpinning of role of a coach and/or mentor, as well as enhancing skills development. It will draw on theology, psychology and insights from various counselling approaches.
