Pastoral Care and Counseling in Large/Mega Congregations: Black Caribbeans’ Perception of Care in Cultural Diversity

Church growth in metropolitan communities motivated a short study concerning the pastoral care and counseling of immigrants, specifically Black Caribbean congregants in large/mega congregations. Culture, denomination history, and interpretations of scripture enter into the dynamics of defining not only the pastoral office of leaders but their perception of “care.” The phenomenological “cycle” of care is said to exist as an exchange happens between caregivers and care receivers. Such an exploration of three congregations opened up rare concepts of the psycho-social, and spiritual nature that guide interpersonal relationships of family systems across cultures. Large/mega congregations desire women’s as well as men’s style of nurturing and of fellowship that form the characteristics of a sharing, caring congregation. The study implicated a need for more comprehensive interdisciplinary teaching methods to train church leaders and clergy. It signals for an approach in practical theology to develop curricula for spiritual health of cultural plurality in congregations and community.

Coaching For Health: Why It Works And How To Do It

This book has a radical new message for any clinician: through coaching you reduce your own stress and you get far better outcomes for patients. ‘Coaching for health’ means creating a different relationship in consultations, asking a different kind of question and giving information in a different way. It goes beyond what is usually meant by ‘patient-centred practice’. It will work with virtually any patient. When you take a coaching approach the chances are that your patients gain confidence in managing their own health, reduce the number of appointments they request, are less likely to need emergency admissions and are more likely to take their medication. Coaching is not just a technique that you switch on and off, it is a wholly different mindset. Coaching for Health explains the rationale for a coaching approach and gives pragmatic step by step help on how to do it. The authors – one an executive coach, one a doctor – write from their extensive, collective experience. Having trained many hundreds of clinicians in coaching skills, Jenny Rogers and Arti Maini have seen firsthand how transforming it can be to use in practice.

Coaching with Empathy

This ground-breaking book will give you the skills you need to become an advanced coach. Coaches tend to come from either a business background or a helping profession background, and each finds the other’s approach limiting. The concept of coaching with empathy, in other words giving the coaching client your total attention, is a winning combination of focusing on both empathy, to uncover psychological blocks, and outcomes, to improve performance and initiate change. The emotional world of clients has been problematic, as coaches are wary of getting into therapy, and emotions may even be ignored in a premature focus on solutions. Yet, without engaging with our clients’ emotions we can’t coach. This book will teach coaches the skill of empathy and explain its key role in client change. You will gain the confidence to use different levels and modes of empathy in a range of settings, to suit your client’s stage in the change process, whilst maintaining a focus on solutions and outcomes. The book promotes a combination of the empathy together with a focus on change and shows coaches how to make a lasting difference to their clients.
