Pastoral/Spiritual Care, Counselling/ Psychotherapy & Education Conversation
On August 20, 2013, Terry Bard (JPCP Managing Editor), John Carr (Secretary of the JPCP Inc Board), and Steve Ivy (Interim President of the JPCP Inc Board) had a 50-minute conversation about the shift that has been taking place in Canada and the United States in the practice, and language about that practice, of persons and professional associations that have historic roots in the modern pastoral care and counseling movement. The conversation was digitally recorded, by agreement among the 3 participants, and is posted at YourListen.
