Item description for The Social Context of Pastoral Care: Defining the Life Situation by George M. Furniss...

Overview
Furniss introduces pastoral caregivers, who are primarily concerned with the fields of theology and psychology, to a third discipline--sociology--and encourages them to incorporate it into their work. He offers a "sampler" of sociological approaches that are particularly relevant to those in the field.

Publishers Description

Because their work focuses primarily on the fields of theology and psychology, pastoral caregivers have often neglected to take into account the social forces that affect both the careseeker and the caregiver. In this groundbreaking book, sociologist and chaplain George Furniss introduces them to a third discipline, sociology, to draw upon in their work. Furniss offers an introduction to sociological approaches that are particularly relevant to those in the field. Brief biographical notes about key figures in sociology and a glossary of terms are supplied to assist those who lack extensive background in sociology.
