Seeing mental health through the lens of Scripture: how narrated photography can resource the use of the Bible within pastoral care


Sarah Dunlop, Cambridge Theological Federation

Initial Description

This project will address the challenge of connecting Scripture with everyday life, particularly in connection with pastoral care situations. The aim is to bring to light Common Awards students’ existing conceptions around mental and spiritual wellbeing and their use of the Bible at the start of the Introduction to Pastoral Care module, and then test to see whether skills at handling the Bible within a pastoral care situation develop and complexify through the learning experiences of the module.
