Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Is the church vulnerable to the pressures of governmental regulations regarding moral issues in counseling? How should biblical counselors navigate their responsibilities before God and government requirements? And what exactly are those requirements? In Legal Issues in Biblical Counseling, pastors and biblical counselors who are seeking to faithfully lead, mentor, and guide their flocks in a rapidly changing cultural landscape will find clear direction and guidance from a team of Christian lawyers. Dale Johnson Jr. and Edward Wilde, along with a host of experienced lawyers and biblical counselors, set out to encourage the church to engage responsibly in the ministry of biblical counseling while seeking to comply with governmental regulations. They explain the importance of involving legal counsel in creating ministry documents, setting up liability insurance, and counseling those involved in the legal system. Learn how to communicate about your counseling ministry with clarity, protect yourself and your counselees from litigation, and what to do in the face of a potential lawsuit. You will also find encouragement to press on in ministry with full trust in the Lord, knowing that he will care for his church and that the gospel will continue to move forward.

Download A Theology of Biblical Counseling PDF by Heath Lambert Full Free and published by Zondervan Academic. This book was released on 2016-04-05 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. As a ministry, counseling must be defined according to sound biblical theology rather than secular principles of psychology. For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling…and bad theology leads to bad counseling. A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that covers the history of the biblical counseling movement, the core convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.
Download The Biblical Counseling Movement PDF by David Powlison Full Free and published by New Growth Press. This book was released on 2010-02-12 with total page 24 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In principle, Christians believe knowing Jesus Christ is the original and abiding "cure of the soul." But in practice, the church's provision of personalized care and counsel has often been unthoughtful and unskillful. During the past 150 years, many other practitioners and theorists have filled the gap. Psychiatry and psychotherapy (transliterations of two Greek words for "cure of the soul") claim to offer the deep truth that explains a human being and the final word on how we can be cured from the troubles that beset us. Secularized explanations and cures call for no recourse to the Bible or Jesus. Beginning in the late 1960s, a biblical counseling movement sought to reclaim counseling for the church. It aimed to provide a coherently Christian alternative to mainstream psychiatry and psychotherapy. The Biblical Counseling Movement: History and Context is an informative and thought-provoking account of that movement. How did it begin and develop? What were the defining ideas? Where were the tension points and struggles, both internally and with evangelical psychotherapists? David Powlison's historical account combines careful scholarship with unique, eyewitness insight. This book is an invaluable resource for those who want to understand the biblical counseling movement. The core chapters were originally a PhD dissertation in history of science and medicine (University of Pennsylvania). This new edition adds a lengthy appendix, containing articles by Dr. Powlison. These extend and deepen the history, giving a fine-grained analysis of developments within the biblical counseling movement and in its relationship to evangelical psychotherapists. The author also freely expresses his point of view and personal convictions regarding the history he has carefully described.

In Developments in Biblical Counseling , J. Cameron Fraser turns a journalistic eye to this question and presents a concise assessment. Introducing us to the formative work of Jay Adams, Fraser outlines several themes of biblical counseling that became foundational for the movement as a whole and observes how the movement received criticisms from outside and made necessary developments from within.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This Special edition of “Dynamic Biblical Counseling” is dedicated to the American homeowner. The American dream of homeownership that is available to everyone has been sold to the American public; however, not everyone is financially or educationally prepared for home ownership. It seems that the American homeowner has not the education regarding how to prevent foreclosure. Perhaps it is not completely the homeowners fault, because often times unscrupulous and predatory realtors, investors, mortgage companies and even loss mitigation companies have sometimes compounded the problem. This fact, coupled with a lack of education regarding financial budgeting has turned the “American Dream” into an “American Nightmare.” Preventing this nightmare is the purpose of this book and mission of Gold Cross of America.

Bob Kellemen builds on the foundation of the written Word and provides a gospel-centered resource for understanding people, diagnosing problems, and prescribing biblically-based solutions. Gospel-Centered Counseling is the first volume in The Equipping Christian Counselors Series, a comprehensive relational training curriculum for the local church that provides a model for equipping God’s people to change lives with Christ’s changeless truth.

Download Foundations for Soul Care PDF by Eric L. Johnson Full Free and published by InterVarsity Press. This book was released on 2009-09-20 with total page 716 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this groundbreaking work of first-order scholarship, Eric Johnson makes a vitally important contribution to the field of Christian counseling. He first presents a detailed overview and appreciative but critical evaluation of the reigning paradigms in the field of Christian counseling, particularly biblical counseling and integration. Building on their respective strengths, he seeks to move beyond the current impasse in the field and develop a more unified and robustly Christian understanding. Drawing upon the Bible and various Christian intellectual and soul care traditions, and through a Christian reinterpretation of relevant modern psychological theory and research, Johnson proceeds to offer a new framework for the care of souls that is comprehensive in scope, yet flows from a Christian understanding of human beings--what amounts to a distinctly Christian version of psychology. This book is a must-read for any serious Christian teacher, student, or practitioner in the fields of psychology or counseling.

Download Addiction and Christian Counseling PDF by Florence Akinwumiju ND DNH Ph.D. Full Free and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2020-06-29 with total page 120 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of this book is to help people overcome addictions to intoxicants and cope with life's stresses which make up the substance abuse counselor's core mission. Counselors start by evaluating an addicted person's physical and mental behaviors, which is the first step in writing an appropriate treatment plan. Depending on the complexity of the problem, a counselor may call in other professionals, such as psychiatrists and social workers. Job prospects are considered greater than average because of a growth in court-ordered referrals to treatment programs. Addiction is an irresistible urge to perform an irrational act and compulsion to dependence. There are 4.2 million pornographic websites, 68 million search engine requests, 42.7 percent of Internet users viewing pornography, and 100,000 websites of pornography. Religious and spiritual features buffer individuals from addictive and risky behaviors. This suggests that religiosity may play a role in beliefs about and the use of pornography. This book will help counselors and experts in the field of Christian counseling education and the interactions they have with clients. Simultaneously, there is certainly room for improvement in the training and preparation of counselors. The purpose of this book is to introduce the topic of training satisfaction, attitude toward pornography, addiction counseling self-efficacy, and the comfort of counselors in discussing sexual issues with clients, particularly Internet pornography.
