Home Units Foundations in Pastoral Supervision

Foundations in Pastoral Supervision

Semester 1

This unit provides a framework for reflection, action and learning in the ministry of supervision.  It seeks to equip practicing pastors to work as supervisors for ordination candidates and ministers-in-formation.  The theory and practice of supervision will be explored through group work and theoretical input.  The distinctives of supervision alongside other mentoring, coaching and accountability processes will be considered. Theoretical input will address issues of goal setting, case studies and evaluation, developing feedback and intervention skills, ethics and duty of care, intercultural dynamics in supervision, along with an introduction to key psychological aspects including projection, transference and power in supervision.
