About the Spirituality, Health and Wellbeing: Spiritual Development in Context (2021) course
This module enables students to explore the variety of ways in which spiritual development takes place over the course of a lifetime. It includes study of various models of spiritual development and the theories that underpin them.
Students will explore issues of particular concern for pastoral care in the contemporary context and engage with non-theological disciplines that provide pastoral care.
This module engages with scholarly debates on the relationship between spiritual development, suffering, and trauma. Students will examine the nature of spirituality and spiritual development for both the very young, the elderly, those who are differently abled, and those who experience trauma.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
