Overview

Courageous Conversations is designed to assist with the complexities of pastoral supervision in a variety of settings, such as local congregations, seminary programs of field education, clinical pastoral education, clinical training of spiritual directors and certified pastoral counselors, and more. The preparation and training of supervisors is diverse and often learned through 'on-the-job-training.' This book draws on a wide variety of experienced supervisors in clinical pastoral education to seminary faculty members. The topics covered in the book address very pragmatic aspects of supervision, for pastors in local congregations who supervise seminary interns to well-developed theoretical aspects of supervisory education that are utilized in clinical pastoral education. Readers of this book will benefit from theoretical viewpoints as well as practical hands-on application to their ministry. Special attention is given to the task, purpose, and methods of pastoral supervision, and helpful suggestions are provided for working with important issues such as pastoral identity, skill development, attending to ethics, postmodernism, gender, sexuality and more.

Editorial Reviews

Herbert Anderson
This diverse collection of substantive essays advocates for pastoral or spiritual supervision that is transformational, intersubjective, mutually vulnerable, improvisational, consistently empathic, trustworthy, and attentive to the particular and universal in every context. William DeLong has edited a much-needed update on the practice of supervision for ministry in settings that are increasingly pluralistic and influenced by postmodern perspectives.
David Steere
This book presents its editor's efforts to put together with his colleagues conversations capable of shaping pastoral supervision for the next 15 years. It is an excellent update for anyone doing supervision, particularly in the implications of postmodern thinking in their practice. Each contributor presents from a solid theoretical basis, a wealth of clinical experience, and a willingness to put their ideas on the line. Forthright discussions of sexuality, ethics, mutual self-disclosure, empathic participation in one another's lives, and spiritual experience approach the courage suggested by its title.
