Counseling Womenby Christie Cozad Neuger
Pub. Date: 01/03/2001
Publisher: Augsburg Fortress, Publishers
In this signal volume, Christie Neuger offers a new feminist paradigm for radical, effective, empowering counseling for women. She contends that pastors must take up the challenge of pastoral counseling, especially in light of the revolutionary pastoral implications of gender studies and feminist theology, as well as the continuing personal and social effects of sexism.
The most sustained and systematic account to date, Neuger's model employs narrative psychotherapya short-term, contextually sensitive, and teachable counseling structure. She espouses counseling in four phases: coming to voice, gaining clarity, making choices, and staying connected. Each is masterfully sketched and illustrated by a common therapeutic problem (e.g., intimate violence, depression, aging).
Neuger's work promises to aid counselors "to help women resist and transform the negative effects of a woman-unfriendly culture" and so to reclaim their stories, their strength, and their lives.
Christie Cozad Neuger is Professor of Pastoral Care and Pastoral Theology at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, St. Paul.
