The students developed communication skills in interpersonal and inter-professional relationships; they became capable to interact with interdisciplinary teams in the process of helping persons. The students’ abilities are challenged and they became emotionally present to patients / persons. The students’ interventions to persons contribute to persons’ healing and wellbeing.
The students became more sensitive to the persons’ concerns / issues, and they became more non-judgmental in their approach towards persons.
Theological reflections on specific human conditions give those who do CPE new understanding of ministry which can be adapted within the African context.
