Narrative Approaches to Spiritual Care

“We are a ‘storied people’ because the God that sustains us is a ‘storied God’” (Stanley Hauerwas). We are shaped by our stories - personal stories, family stories and the larger narratives of our social and cultural contexts. People looking for spiritual or pastoral care often come with very problem-focused stories which are draining their lives of hope. This course will explore these ideas and teach you how to engage in conversations which will help people uncover and live out alternative stories of hope for their lives.
