Seminar in East Liberty on ethics in pastoral counseling

Written by Ann Rodgers on .

Many pastors and even lay volunteers offer counseling to troubled people. Yet they may not have had the opportunity to receive much training in the right way to offer such counsel, and the risks involved if its offered in the wrong way.
Such training is being made available on Wednesday, Feb. 6 in Mount Ararat Baptist Church, East Liberty, with a seminar on “Ethics in Counseling and Pastoral Care” sponsored by the Metro-Urban Institute of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Continuing education credits are available. The featured speakers are Taunya Tinsley, a licensed professional counselor on staff at Mount Ararat and the Rev. Joan Prentice, an associate pastor at the church.
The seminar is open to the community, and is recommended for seminarians, clergy and lay ministers. It starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday, lasts about two hours, and costs $25.
