Pastoral Care Studies Programs
Blanton-Peale Graduate Institute
Pastoral Care Studies is a one-day-a-week professional
training experience designed specifically for parish clergy, religious
leaders, seminary and lay leaders who seek to improve their pastoral skills
Pastoral Care Studies is designed to enhance ministry
by introducing students to the concepts of depth psychology. Students
learn specific pastoral care skills and have the opportunity to practice
these skills and receive supervision for their pastoral work. They learn
to think of their ministries differently as they learn pastoral care and
counseling theory, the concepts of human development, systems theory and
crisis management. They learn to apply this knowledge to themselves, as
well, through peer group and class work on professional identity development.
Training challenges students to integrate learning theoretically, emotionally
Pastoral Care Studies is offered in two one-year
modules at the Blanton-Peale Graduate Institute, 3 West 29th Street, New
York, New York. Certificates are awarded with the completion of both years
of the Program. Classes are currently offered in English on Mondays and
in Korean on Saturdays from 9:00 AM until 3:35 PM. Registration for fall
classes is held the first Monday and Saturday after Labor Day.
