COUN 526 Suffering and Hope (3 credits)
Engages the complex and very real experiences of human suffering within the context of the Judeo-Christian Faith traditions. Various biblical accounts of suffering’s meaning and purpose (such as the Book of Job) will be systemically investigated to provide the pastoral counselor a grounding in this difficult aspect of life. Insights from the noted theologians will be studied to assist in the application of properly responding to the question of suffering.
