New Book Released

A third book has been released for CPSP-Philippines. Front Art The book is Dynamics in Pastoral Counseling and Training. It is the second book by the Munsons to support CPE training programs.

Pastoral counseling is a form of counseling that draws from the social sciences, but far more from pastoral theology, metaphor, symbols, and rituals. This book seeks to explore aspects of pastoral counseling with special emphasis on the dynamic processes associated with training, supervision, relationships, life stages, faith development, and theological reflection.

The book is presently available on Amazon at This Location.  Kindle version will follow, and paper copies will be available at the Bukal Life Care office (in Baguio City) in a few weeks.

Two other books are:

The Art of Pastoral Care   by Robert and Celia Munson

Pastoral Care Response to Alcoholism in the Armed Forces of the Philippines    by Simplicio Dang-Awan Jr.
