Pastoral care and shame. Based on a distinction between shame, shamefulness and shamelessness, I investigate how pastors can take care of the shame that occurs - or fails to occur - in an existential conversation.
Primary fields of research
- Interdisciplinary theology with regards to risk and danger. This project has investigated theological models for understanding and living with risk and danger in a Christian context. The results are being fine-tuned towards publication with Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.
- Theology of forgiveness and reconciliation. This project develops a cricial model for the relationship between forgiveness and reconciliation. I draw special attention to the emotions that belong to a process of reconciliation.
- Contemporary ecclesial practices
