Educational Experience

American National University Of religious Arts - Doctorate Of Divinity-Clinical Pastoral Education
November 11, 2002
Knowledge: Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is professional education for ministry. It brings theological students, ordained clergy, members of religious orders and qualified laypersons into supervised encounters with "living human documents." It encourages me to develop: my pastoral identity, interpersonal competence and spirituality; the skills of pastoral assessment, interprofessional collaboration, group leadership, pastoral care and counseling; and pastoral theological reflection. Clinical Pastoral Education integrates into pastoral practice knowledge of theology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, ethics and medicine. Its design has molded me to discover who I am in relationship to God, self, and others. This process is experienced holistically. Charles T. Hall sees the Clinical Pastoral Education as "a dynamic process of learning from living human documents, oneself and others, especially persons in various crises of life. CPE has taught me to embraces conceptual learning of theology and psychology and experiential learning from religious experience. I am convinced that conceptual theology is the systematic organization of the experiences of the people of God and that such revelation continues in the experiences of persons today. Human beings are thinking and feeling creatures and pastoral care and counseling must minister to the whole person." Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) started in the 1920's in a mental hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts, largely through the work of Anton T. Boisen and Richard C. Cabot. In addition to mental hospitals, CPE is presently offered in a variety of other clinical settings that include full service hospitals, social service agencies, prisons, university campuses, medical schools, parishes, and military establishments. I have gained the pleasure of counseling individuals of various cultures, customs, and religions. I have learned that in order to counsel individuals one must appreciate society and become vulnerable to a diverse world. It is not important to discover differences of neither religious expression nor prejudices. However, to express the pleasure of viewing and appreciating all perspectives afforded you. Ultimately, the counselor must concern himself with the soul of the individual if he or she is interested in ministering, or providing psychotherapy, to the whole individual (mind, body, soul). I have the knowledge of counseling individuals with various needs such as, spiritual, rehabilitation, crisis, post-traumatic stress syndrome, psychosocial, adjusting and coping with life style changes. I use the System/Method of Psychotherapy which in-houses several or more techniques: Cognitive Behavioral Therapies: which is a psychotherapy based on modifying cognitions, assumptions, beliefs and behaviors, with the aim of influencing disturbed emotions. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: a form of dept psychology, the primary focus of which is to reveal the unconscious content of a client’s psyche in effort to alleviate psychic tension. Existential Therapy: is partly based on existential belief that human beings are alone in the world. This aloneness leads to feelings of meaninglessness which can be overcome only by creating ones own values and meaning. Humanistic Psychology: or behaviorism and psychoanalysis. It is explicitly concerned with human dimensions of psychology and the human context for the development of psychological theory. These matters are often summarized by the five postulates of Humansitic Psychology given by James Bugental (1964), mainly that: 1. Human beings cannot be reduced to components. 2. Human beings have within them a uniquely human context. 3. Human consciousness includes an awareness of oneself in the context of other people. 4. Human beings have choices and non-desired responsibilities. 5. Human beings are intentional, they seek meaning, value and creativity. Brief Therapy: umbrella term for variety of approaches to psychotherapy. (a) focus on a specific problem and (b) direct intervention by multiple view points. Systemic Therapy: or Marriage and Family Therapy: method of studying and understanding marriage and family dilemmas and triggers to heal that situation. Integrative Psychotherapy: Initially created by Sigmund Freud called Psychoanalysis “the talking cure.” It was later given a variety of names by various disciplines. I exercise the use of Moral Treatment, also known as Moral Therapy or Management as the counseling method of choice. It offers techniques soothing to mental disorder based on humane psychosocial care and moral discipline. Although, its emergence came during the late 18th and 19th century - it derives partly from psychiatry or psychology and partly from religion and moral concerns. This method/movement’s is particularly associated with reform of individuals of asylum systems or mental institution seeking cure. It is widely exercised amid therapeutic communities. Skills: My skills include plans or assisting in planning comprehensive religious programs for clients and families including educational services. I counsel and advise on spiritual matters, personal, and community problems. I organize and conduct classes concerning rehabilitation and religion. Organize activities and special event groups. I coordinate religious activities for institutional programs; perform orientation, present sermons and addresses for civic and religious groups. Correspond with individuals and families requiring counseling and special needs. I have excellent communication and leaderships skills. Organize group sessions for alcohol and drug abuse program by creating an atmosphere for “talking cure” often referred to as psychotherapy. Organizing and conducting HIV-AIDS/STD counseling through brief therapy and exercising patient confidentiality. I conduct intake interviews with individuals or groups to determine problem areas and focus of counseling. I formulate treatment plans to accomplish client goals. Abilities: I have the ability to direct and conduct activities that promote the spiritual development and healing of individuals and families. The ability to utilize initiative and judgment in developing and implementing religious and other programs. The ability to conduct religious services and establish and maintain harmonious relationships with administrative officials and other staff, clients, and their families and the community. I have the ability to supervise others and work well with team members. I have the ability to deal with all types of problems be it spiritual or psychological. I am able to counsel individuals, groups, marriage partners, or families. I have the ability to assist others in understanding and overcoming social, emotional, and psychological problems as processes of growth and not obstacles. I am able to use appropriate therapies to improve the functioning of clients.

Concordia University - Master of Theology-Philosophy (major)
December 12, 1995
“Christian theism has much to say not only about metaphysical issues, but also about human nature, and what we can know, and how we should think and behave. In many such areas there is overlap with the realm of psychology, and there are numerous points of at least apparent conflict as well as agreement. In the current paper, we attempt to explore some of these points of contact by giving a brief review of scientific psychology from a Christian perspective.” I’m understanding that two scientific thoerist have the responsibility at the University of New Mexico for teaching courses on statistics and scientific methodology in a psychology department with large undergraduate and graduate degree programs; Dr Harold Delaney & Dr Timothy Goldsmith. Their particular department is dominated by behaviorists and neuroscientists, who presume that students will be taught a naturalistic, deterministic view of science. I equally endeavor teaching and research interests in other content areas of psychology, namely, cognitive psychology and the history of psychology. Thus, it is from the perspective of such professional experience and interests that my colleagues and I will be reflecting on the methods and presuppositions of psychology as they relate to Christian views of knowledge and reality.
