Overview

Helping others find healing is hard work. An effective counselor seeks to understand an individual's past, while remaining aware of the changes in his or her present behavior, thinking, and spiritual life. But, in this healing process, what to say, what to do, or where to start isn't always clear.

The Pastoral Counseling Handbook offers the much needed message of hope for those who desire to help. Drawing from her faith in Christ's healing work and her years of counseling experience, author Ruth Hetzendorfer explains how to get to the root of a person's problem, what to do about it, and when to make a referral. She provides you with the steps and ideas essential to bring wise and effective guidance to others.
