The Blanton-Peale Pastoral Care Program, offered in Korean, is designed to enhance the professional skills of clergy and other religious leaders in the areas of pastoral care and non-licensed pastoral counseling. Candidates in the program are often already religious professionals, but may also be professionals who are licensed in the mental health field through some other previous degree or licensing program, and who seek a fuller integration of spiritual aspects of human experience into the mental health field. Graduates are eligible to apply for membership in the American Association for Pastoral Counseling (AAPC).
