Shared Wisdom

Use of the Self in Pastoral Care and Counseling, Revised and Expanded 20th Anniversary Edition
  • By Pamela Cooper-White
Product Description

For twenty years, clinical pastoral educators, congregational caregivers, chaplains, pastoral psychotherapists, and pastoral theologians have turned to Pamela Cooper-White's Shared Wisdom to ground their teaching, training, and understandings of countertransference and how the use of the caregiver's self, in turn, impacts the relational dynamic between caregivers and care seekers. Now, Cooper-White updates her groundbreaking book to present new insights on how understanding one's own emotional reactions remains a core competency for ministry.

With precision and depth, Cooper-White continues to innovate the theory and practice of spiritual care, counseling, and spiritual psychotherapy. This revised and expanded 20th anniversary edition explores current research on countertransference and intersubjectivity; mutual influence and unconscious relationships; and intercultural and interreligious dynamics in caring relationships. Cooper-White examines how the relational paradigm for pastoral assessment and theological reflection that she pioneered now has important implications for evolving types of care relationships. As she does so, she addresses emerging topics such as postcolonial theory, spiritual and religious fluidity, and gender diversity.

CPE supervisors, pastoral care and counseling educators and practitioners, pastoral theology scholars, and psychotherapists looking for an in-depth understanding of relationality and intersubjectivity will find the 20th anniversary edition of Shared Wisdoma must-have resource to build and expand upon a core competency.
