An Investigation into the Counselling-Type Work of Roman Catholic Priests: A Survey of One Diocese in Northern Ireland.
O'Kane, Seamus; Millar, Rob
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v29 n3 p323-35 Aug 2001
Investigates the counseling services of Catholic priests working in pastoral situations in Northern Ireland. Examines the types of problems presented to the clergy and how they respond to them. Findings reveal a wide variety of problems with bereavement, alcohol or substance abuse, marital disharmony, and terminal illness most common. Priests' training was reported as largely irrelevant to their current needs. (Contains 20 references.) (GCP)
