sample of subjects, individuals who have graduated the Midwest Pastoral Counseling

Program at Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio in the years 2003-2006.

There are no other special conditions or procedures for the subjects. Ashland Theological

Seminary is located in north central Ohio and is one of the graduate divisions of Ashland

University. The roots of the seminary are in the Brethren denomination, but the campus

is pluralistic in its student body, representing approximately 70 different denominations.

The student body is also culturally and ethnically diverse. Most of the students commute

to the campus for classes, with some having a local commute of a few minutes and others

commuting up to two hours. A few students live in the limited campus housing.

the Counseling Department, the Midwest Pastoral Counseling Program predominately

has two degree tracks. One track requires 110 quarter hours of study and leads to the

Master of Arts in Clinical Pastoral Counseling and meets the requirements of the State of

Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist Board for licensure

as a Professional Counselor or a Professional Clinical Counselor. The other track of

study requires 96 quarter hours of study and leads to the Master of Arts in Pastoral

Counseling and does not meet the licensure requirements for the State of Ohio Counselor,

Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Board. Therefore a person who is not

licensed as a Professional Counselor or a Professional Clinical Counselor is much more

limited in the breadth of counseling services that can be legally offered. Both tracks of

the Midwest Counseling Program require that a student complete at least 5 biblical core
