Overview

Women have unique needs and unique problems that require understanding, empathy, and direction from their pastors and counselors. For anyone who is called to counsel women, The Quick-Reference Guide to Counseling Women will be a welcome guide to bring hope, life, and freedom to women in need.

This A-Z guide gives pastors, professional counselors, and lay helpers the information they need to help female church members, clients, and friends work through their spiritual and emotional issues. The many topics addressed include:
healthy relationships
conflict and stress
sexuality, pregnancy, and infertility
emotional and physical abuse
roles of women

Each of the forty topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies typical symptoms and patterns, definitions and key thoughts, questions to ask, directions for the conversation, action steps, biblical insights, prayer starters, and recommended resources.
