A client raises spiritual questions. Can a Christian therapist working in a government agency talk with a client about faith? A young couple with two children asks a Christian counselor to help them negotiate an end to their marriage. What responsibility does the counselor have to try to repair the relationship? A youth group member confidentially reveals to the pastor that he is taking drugs. Should the pastor tell the boy's parents? A counselor who teaches a college course has a client show up for class. What should she do? These are just a few of the complex dilemmas that therapists, counselors and pastors face nearly every day. Handling these situations appropriately is critical for both the client's progress and the professional's personal credibility and protection from liability. State and federal codes, professional association statements and denominational guidelines have been drawn up to address ethical issues like competence, confidentiality, multiple relationships, public statements, third parties and documentation. In this book you'll find them all compiled and interpreted in light of Christian faith and practice. Written by qualified professional counselors and respected academic instructors, this book is an indispensable resource for understanding and applying ethics in Christian counseling today.

A Theology of Christian Counseling by Jay E. Adams

A Theology of Christian Counseling connects biblical doctrine with practical living. Salvation, that central concern of Protestant theology, is often too narrowly defined. It is thought of as “being saved from the consequences of sin.” But God is doing much more. He is making something new out of the old sinful nature. He is, in Christ, making new creatures.“No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers. . . . No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor’s stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling!”In this book the reader will gain an insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs a biblical approach to counseling. And the connection between solid theology and practical application will become compelling. This book is one-of-a-kind.

  • ISBN : 0830879048

Sin. Grace. Christian Counseling. How do these fit together? In Christian theology sin and grace are intrinsically interconnected. Teacher and counselor Mark McMinn believes that Christian counseling, then, must also take account of both human sin and God's grace. For both sin and grace are distorted whenever one is emphasized without the other. McMinn, noting his own tendencies and the temptation to stereotype different Christian approaches to counseling along this theological divide, aims to help all those preparing for or currently serving in the helping professions. Expounding the proper relationship of sin and grace, McMinn shows how the full truth of the Christian gospel works itself out in the functional, structural and relational domains of an integrative model of psychotherapy.

Seasoned counselors and professors Ron Hawkins and Tim Clinton offer a comprehensive guide that empowers Christian counselors by clarifying their task: to help people take possession of their souls...through the power of the Spirit; under the authority of the Word; in a supportive community of accountability...that they may be like Christ. The authors address head-on today's enticing new imitations of true peace and tantalizing opportunities for people in pain to anesthetize themselves. But they also highlight the foundation of hope: God loves, he empowers, and he refuses to abandon his passion for connection with his children. Case studies illustrate how to help people take possession of the thinking self, the feeling self, the decision-making self, the physical self, and the relational self. This comprehensive plan for effective intervention is perfect for lay counselors, students, and professionals looking for ways to integrate their faith and practice.

How Christian is Christian Counseling by Gary Almy

  • ISBN : 1581341350

This helpful book intricately intertwines history, philosophy, and theology in a powerful critique of psychiatry. . . . It is the book you have wanted to give to Christians who have become tangled in the tenets and tentacles of psychiatric theory and practice. If you are a serious student, you cannot be without it. -Dr. Jay E. Adams Years ago, seeking the help of a professional counselor was considered a last measure. Now it is an acceptable and common practice--even within the church--as biblical counseling has gained popularity. And yet biblical counseling is not so biblical, says Gary Almy, for even Christian psychology has roots in a secular understanding of human nature--an understanding developed by men like Sigmund Freud who never claimed the Scriptures as a guide for their thinking. Almy, a board-certified psychiatrist, discovered after his conversion the incompatibility of God's Word with secular psychology's assessment of--and solution to--the human condition. Therapists guide people away from any conviction of sin and lead them to blame others for their problems. It is an approach that fails to meet the true human need. This clear and in-depth book examines the men and the theories behind modern counseling methods and explores their roots in secular philosophy. Almy also presents the biblical alternative: being equipped with the written Word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are to point the lost to the Savior and encourage one another toward maturity and fullness in Christ.

My name is Dr. Pearlie Braswell-Tripp, Ph.D. I do not claim to be an expert in religion, psychology, or counseling, but experience has taught me a lot about all three. 2 Timothy, 2:15 says: “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” I was born in 1943 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina into a Christian family. My family was attending the Rock of Ages Holiness Church. My mother, Sister Mary Jones-Braswell played the guitar; my sister, Christine Braswell played the piano and the rest of the family sang. There were seven of us girls. My sisters; Frances, Christine, Doretha, Verna, Margaree and Mary Lee were older. We were known as the Braswell sisters. My father was Lee Braswell, the most handsome man in town. I will never forget the great times we had in Rocky Mount, nor will I forget the great Rock of Ages Holiness Church. Our church was two blocks away from our home. That meant we had no real reason not to go. Many of my other relatives attended Rock of Ages also. My mother’s parents attended and so did her brother and his family. Those were what we now call “The good ole days.” I really loved those days. We traveled around singing the gospel until we left home for New York City in 1961. We were rooted and grounded in religion.

This vision changed her life, but it was not until the brutal death of her son that she gained the courage to release the vision and accept its purpose in her life.
