Pastoral Care Conference

April 24-25, 2017, we held a great conference on the grounds of Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary (PBTS). The conference was a partnership between CPSP-Philippines, CPSP, PBTS, and Bukal Life Care. This was the “2nd Dayot and Dickens Pastoral Care Conference.”

The main speaker is Dr. Doug Dickens, a CPSP-certified Diplomate Supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education/Training. He has mentoring relationship with CPSP-Philippines. The topic was “The Beatitudes: Diagnosis and Healing from the Inside Out.” The topic looks at the Beatitudes as a form of pastoral diagnosis… not in terms of pathology, but in terms of holistic wellness. With 220 participants, we had a wonderful time, and look forward more gatherings like this in the future.
