The aim of this course is to examine the historical and theological constructs of incarceration in America. We will be exploring the "minefields" of professional boundaries both for the professional correctional chaplain and the prison ministry volunteer. The policies and procedures of the Religious Services at the Department of Correction will also be presented. Students will gain a familiarity with the development of the prison industrial complex, an awareness of the complexity of the personal, social and spiritual issues underlying incarceration, particularly addiction and an awareness of the need for and benefit of professional ethical boundaries.
Price includes tuition, DVD, text/workbook.
