Overview

One of the foremost counseling needs in our day is help with sexuality and relationship issues. But sometimes those who are faced with helping the hurting could use a little more information about the problems that people bring to them. The Quick-Reference Guide to Sexuality and Relationship Counseling provides the answers. It is an A-Z guide for assisting people-helpers—pastors, professional counselors, youth workers, and everyday believers—to easily access a full array of information to aid them in (formal and informal) counseling situations. Each of the 40 topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies: 1) typical symptoms and patterns, 2) definitions and key thoughts, 3) questions to ask, 4) directions for the conversation, 5) action steps, 6) biblical insights, 7) prayer starters, and 8) recommended resources.
