Hello, my name is Lauren Noce and I am in my second year of the CMHC graduate program at Franciscan University. I came to Steubenville 5 years ago for a youth conference and I fell in love with this school. I just graduated this past May with my BA in Psychology and I have enjoyed my time here at Franciscan.

In my undergraduate years I played 3 sports Varsity Soccer, Basketball and Lacrosse, I got to travel to Austria in Fall 2015, and I am a member of Totus Tuus Maria. I am the oldest of 4 children and I am originally from Brewster, New York. I hope to eventually become a Child Psychologist and maybe a Youth Soccer, Basketball, or Lacrosse Coach. I am excited to begin blogging, this will be my first time!

“Issues Related to the Implementation of Pastoral Counseling”

A couple of weeks ago, we briefly discussed (in response to Benner’s chapters 3 & 4) issues related to the implementation of pastoral counseling—that is, the kinds of practical decisions, approaches, and techniques pastoral counselors might use when meeting with clients. I also asked you to think about resources or counseling practices that you have or would use with clients that can be seen as unique to pastoral counseling.
