The Practice of Nouthetic Counseling
This is a manual that the author suggests be used as a companion to an earlier book that he authored, Competent to Counsel. Dr. Adams has developed the term of noutheic Counseling, which he feels is counseling to be grounded in Biblical Scriptures.
The Christian Counselor’s Manual is a companion and sequel to the author’s influential Competent to Counsel. It takes the approach of nouthetic counseling introduced in the earlier volume and applies it to a wide range of issues, topics, and techniques in counseling:
*Who is qualified to be a counselor?
*How can counselees change?
*How does the Holy Spirit work?
*What role does hope play?
*What is the function of language?
*How do we ask the right questions?
*What often lies behind depression?
*How do we deal with anger?
*What is schizophrenia?
These and hundreds more questions are answered in this comprehensive resource for the Christian counselor. A full set of indexes, a detailed table of contents, and a full complement of diagrams and forms make this an outstanding reference book for Christian counselors.
