Self-Acceptance - A Clinical Book

The Use of
Pastoral Care in Ministry

Research has proven that stress and burnout among clergy are multiphasic because of its spiritual and secular demands and expectations from others. This book examines the reasons why clergy persons are hesitant to receive assistance from pastoral counselors as they enter the African Methodist Episcopal church. The question: Why is pastoral counseling not an instructional component in the preparation for ministry in the Board of Examiners?

This book emphasizes the need for Pastoral Care in the church with various examples of Case Studies. It suggests a method of approaching oneself and a possible parishioner/client in an acceptance attitude and modality for Pastoral Care. It further shows the need to take care of one's self in the ministry and identify the need to solicit professional help from a specialist.
