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 and practically.

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.
