NAMING THE PAIN IN THE LANGUAGE OF PRAYER: SPIRITUAL ASSESSMENT FOR PASTORAL COUNSELING
Donald D. Denton, Jr., DMin
Douglas M. Thorpe, PhD
Pastoral counselors bring to the task of assessment the twin lenses of contemporary psychology and the time-tested wisdom of the world’s major religious traditions. Too often, the psychological lens dominates the process of assessment and the spiritual perspective gets relegated to a secondary position – or even neglected altogether.
In this workshop Donald Denton, author of two books on assessment, and Douglas Thorpe, who teaches assessment for Doctor of Ministry students, seek to correct the imbalance by focusing attention on methods and resources for spiritual assessment.
