Pastoral Psychology for Africa: A Guide for Practice
AUTHOR: Sahaya G. Selvam
In pastoral practice, good will is not good enough. We also need a scientific approach. Psychology can provide a framework for a systematic approach in pastoral care.
Psychology for Pastoral Practice in Africa is designed to offer a scientific framework for Christian ministry in traditional societies such as Africa. The approach is ecumenical and Catholic. It is scholarly and accessible.
The target readership of the book is pastoral practitioners in the field, and those preparing themselves for any form of caring ministry in Africa.
The book could be used as a textbook in seminary formation for pastoral theology, and pastoral psychology in particular. It could also be used by pastoral practitioners for ongoing formation.
