Using Scripture in Pastoral Counseling
Full Product Description
Detailed case studies are presented to depict the way the Bible can be used with counselees. Particular attention is given to pastoral counseling with individuals, marital couples, and families who bring to pastoral counseling a history of employing Scripture to bring order and meaning to their lives.
Often, however, the biblical story seems to be secondary in their lives, and a more dominant and unhealthy story is primary. The method of using Scripture suggested in the book illuminates how the Bible story challenges and transforms unhealthy dominant stories that people bring to counseling.
The model is presented in stages that cover the beginning, the middle, and the ending phases of pastoral counseling. The stages of the model include attending to the presenting problem, giving attention to the personal, marital, and family myths that dominate the lives of the counselees, mapping the negative influence of these myths, ascertaining a preferred story that counselees want to enact, setting therapeutic goals, and using Scripture to re-author and edit the negative mythology.
