The phrase pastoral care can and has been used to encompass a wide variety of activities related to the care of children, usage that has resulted in a kind of vagueness when it comes to providing a specific definition.
I wish to offer a very singular definition that will naturally lead to particular activities that have definite objectives with regard to the care of the young. It is a definition that has seated itself more comfortably in my thinking and practice during the fifty years or so that I have been involved in the care of the young.
I believe your participation in and satisfactory completion of this course will provide you with a basic understanding of pastoral care, together with knowledge and understandings that will fit you better for your own involvement with children and young people.
The short course includes course notes, reading list and exercise. You also have the option to have your exercise graded and a certificate issued upon successful completion.
