(1 credit)  This course builds on the material from CST131. This course will focus in depth on working with specific issues such as grief, loss, illness, pain, and trauma. We will practice counseling and communication skills relevant to chaplaincy, pastoral counseling, and the contemplative practice of helping others. Students are encouraged to be actively engaged in having a formal role of service or helping others, as we will bring real life case examples into class discussions and experiential learning exercises.
