Item description for African American Pastoral Care And Counseling: The Politics of Oppression And Empowerment by Edward P. Wimberly & Robert M. Franklin...
Overview Shows those who engage in pastoral care and counseling with African Americans how to navigate around the obstacles so those they counsel can best make use of their personal and political agency and efficacy.
Publishers Description It because pastoral care and counseling facilitate personal agency and efficacy (personal, social, and political empowerment and transformation) that African American pastoral care and counseling are inherently political processes, contends Wimberly. In this new book, he outlines the theological anthropology that under girds the practices of care and the practices of self as holistic processes. He shows those who engage in pastoral counseling with African Americans how to navigate around the negative self-images, identities, and stories into which they have been recruited in order to liberate themselves to discern how to best make use of their personal and political agency and efficacy.
