The Psychopathology and Spiritual Conflicts Module is designed to provide the caregiver (pastor, lay-counsellor) with a bio-psycho-social-spiritual understanding of abnormal behaviour.

It will introduce the student to the theory and theology of spiritual conflict and the related concepts, and provide an understanding of the different psychological/mental disorders.  

Lay and pastoral care-givers will be equipped with the necessary skills to differentiate, make provisional assessments, and make appropriate referrals. They will be able to come alongside people with mental disorders and/or spiritual conflicts with supportive caregiving, and will be able to counsel within the boundaries of their training.
