This course explores the nature of human systems from psychological, theological, sociological and pastoral care perspectives. The course introduces a contemplative perspective drawn from the Christian Mystical tradition, Gestalt and Jungian Psychology, and General Systems Theory. Students will examine the interface and implications of these perspectives for personal spiritual formation, systemic assessment, and the practice of pastoral care with individuals, couples, families and larger systems.
