An updated and revised edition of At the Heart of Education, this multi-contributory book is a reader for all those who study as well as practise pastoral care in schools. Edited by James O’Higgins Norman, it brings together international research in the fields of school chaplaincy and pastoral studies.
Contributors include former editor of the Irish Journal of Psychology, Dr Christopher Alan Lewis, founder member of the Irish Association of Pastoral Care in Education, Dr Maeve Martin, and Deputy CEO for Frontier Youth Trust, Dr Nigel Pimlott.
Suitable for teachers, chaplains, class tutors, year heads and guidance counsellors, these timely and engaging readings emphasise the combined contribution that can be made to the development of pastoral care, and allow those who work with young people in schools to locate their professional practice within a theoretical framework for pastoral care.
