Course: LANG120 Basic Latin

General Study: Biblical and Cognate Languages

3 CEUs

Online Archived (mostly module-oriented based on Wheelock's Latin with instructor interaction)

Instructor: Rt. Rev. Leland Lannoye, S.T.D.

The objective is to be able to read, or, at least, understand what is written in the various styles of Latin we will be studying, most often in a theological setting. From time to time, students will dabble in earlier writers, say up to about the third century B.C.E. As this program evolves, the intention is to provide insight into late Latin, low Latin, certain dialects (yes, Latin had dialects). Latin as it is used today is both drastically, yet not so unfamiliar, different from what you would have heard Cicero speak in the Roman senate.

Course: MIN150 Support for Caregivers

General Study: Ministry and Church Development

3 CEUs

Online Archived (plus interaction with instructor)

Instructor: Judy Quitoriano, D.D.

This is a general studies course in Pastoral Theology, which offers those in ministry an effective foundation in forming a group support system for those who are caring for a sick/dying loved one. Caregivers are on the front lines in terms of dealing with death and dying. This is even more pronounced since they provide care 24/7 to a loved one. The burnout, fatigue, and personal health threats make this such an important ministry to address. Support provides consolation to others in the same position to sustain a quality of life and health. This course addresses these topics: education of caregivers, spiritual dimensions, and group formation to support these courageous individuals. With the changing demographics in the population this course offers timely guidelines to provide a much needed forum for support. Students will cover these topics: Pragmatic Aspects of Care (providing education to the caregiver), Spiritual Dimensions (Grounding in the Tradition with Scriptural References), Active Listening, Adequate Self Care, Overcoming Resistance, Managing Anger, Group Support and Sharing, Group Formation, Interviewing Group Members, and Making Referrals.
