Strategic Pastoral Counseling: A Short-Term Structured Model (2ND ed.)
Pastors frustrated with inadequate counseling time and training will appreciate this elegantly simple counseling model. Now thoroughly revised with two new chapters.
Therapeutic counseling in a Christian context can be highly effective when it maintains narrowly focused goals in a time-limited setting. The details of this proven model of pastoral counseling are described in this practical guide.
This second edition of Strategic Pastoral Counseling has been thoroughly revised and includes two new chapters. Benner includes helpful case studies, a new appendix on contemporary ethical issues, and updated chapter bibliographies. His study will continue to serve clergy and students well as a valued practical handbook on pastoral care.
